Katia Rodriguez

LAIS Graduate Student

Bio

My name is Katia Rodriguez, I’m a first year graduate student in the LAIS program. My research interest is Mesoamerican Indigenous Literatures and Cultures, with an emphasis on the sociolinguistic situation of Indigenous communities from Guatemala and Mexico. Taking into consideration my area of research, I chose LAIS because it allows me to examine the culture and people of Spanish speaking countries who have been marginalized in the past, not only in Latin America, but also in the United States.
