Erika Rodriguez received their M.A. in Spanish from University of Oregon and Ph.D. in comparative literature from Washington University in St. Louis. Her current book project, “Disabling Progress: Degeneration, Eugenics, and Futurity in Modern Spain,” explores the construction of disability in relation to time, scrutinizing the connective tissue between visions of progress in theories of degeneration and early eugenics. Their second major project will continue to examine disability, economy, and political personhood by turning to representations of labor movements in Iberian, Cuban, and Filipino literature. Her publications on critical disability studies and Iberian culture studies have appeared in Disability Studies Quarterly, the Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos, and the Hispanic Research Journal.
