comparative literature, public humanities, Alexander von Humboldt
In this episode, Harper speaks with Dr. Giovanna Montenegro about her work in comparative literature and how she thinks about sharing her research with the public. We consider Montenegro's work with Alexander von Humboldt and Germans in the Americas, reconsidering colonial legacies through renaming, and the aural nature of radio by considering Montenegro's academic career and current projects. Giovanna also reads poems "Immigrants" by Pat Mora and "Nuyorican Lament" by Gloria Vando.
