Professor Emily Hind specializes in Mexican studies and has published a book on Mexican women intellectuals (Boob Lit, 2010), a book of interviews with fifteen Mexican women writers (Entrevistas, 2003). A second book of interviews, this one with twenty Mexican writers born in the 1970s, includes men authors (La generación XXX, 2013). Hind has written numerous articles on Mexican literature and film, with concentrations on topics such as children’s literature, pirates and celebrity culture, and the genre of the essay. She is currently drafting articles on drug trafficking and the theory of drugs, ageism and specters, and the Mexican novel and disability studies. Hind’s analysis on lesbianism in the work of Rosario Castellanos won the Feministas Unidas Essay Contest 2005. Living authors treated in her recent articles include Vivian Abenshushan, Mario Bellatin, Sabina Berman, Carmen Boullosa, Bernardo Esquinca, Guadalupe Loaeza, Fabio Morábito, and Cristina Rivera Garza. Deceased writers contemplated in her recent work include Guadalupe Amor, Carlos Fuentes, and Asunción Izquierdo Albiñana.
