Camilo Jaramillo

Assistant Professor


BA Literatura, Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia, 2007.

Ph.D. Hispanic Languages and Literatures, University of California – Berkeley, 2016.

Camilo Jaramillo works on modern and contemporary Latin American literature and visual culture. His research focuses on the aesthetics and politics of representations of nature, particularly of the Amazon rainforest. His Ph.D dissertation, Amazonia: A Laboratory for Fiction, traces the emergence and evolution of the novel as a form that questions and destabilizes the integration of the region’s natural resources into processes of modernization. His research is informed by his interest in theory of the novel, postcolonial studies, and ecocriticism. His forthcoming articles include an essay on the emergence of a literary imagery of Amazonia in Euclides da Cunha’s essays Á margem da história  (Brazil, 1909), and on representations of Amazonian nature as a “monstrous vegetation” and its relationship with the exploitation of the region. Professor Jaramillo also specializes on the Latin American novel, focusing on its evolution throughout time as well as its aesthetic and social values in the Spanish speaking world.
