Bladimir Ruiz, Ph.D.
- Associate Professor , Modern Languages and Literatures
I grew up in Venezuela, and originally specialized in 19th-century Venezuelan literature and the connection between nationalism and narrative. I've since branched out into the 20th (and 21st!) centuries, but still explore the relationship between hegemonic ideologies and their artistic reflections. At Trinity, I've taught all levels of Spanish, and seminars in sexuality, film, and youth identities.
I love teaching at Trinity. I draw daily inspiration from the energy of my students. Trinity is a place where you can develop close ties to everybody: students, faculty, and staff. It truly feels like a community.
