University of New Mexico

Dr. Jesse Alemán’s scholarship and teaching cover two fields: nineteenth-century American literature and US Latino/a literary histories. His work focuses on the literary production and national identities that were forged after the 1846-1848 U.S.-Mexico War. He has over a dozen articles in scholarly journals and edited collections, including recent publications in American Literary History, The Oxford Handbook to Nineteenth-Century American Literature, and Hemispheric American Studies. He reprinted Loreta Janeta Velazquez’s 1876 autobiography, The Woman in Battle, and he co-edited Empire and the Literature of Sensation, which is an anthology of nineteenth-century popular literature about U.S. imperialism in Mexico and Cuba.
