Spanish Professor Publishes First English Language Book on Prominent Chilean Artist/Poet

book cover

Scott Weintraub, assistant professor of Spanish, has published Juan Luis Martínez’s Philosophical Poetics with Bucknell University Press, the first English-language monograph on this neo-avant-garde Chilean visual artist and poet who died in 1993. This publication follows on the heels of a Spanish-language publication in which Weintraub recounts his discovery about a set of poems that Martínez appropriated from a Swiss-Catalan poet of the same name. Read an article about the discovery.

Weintraub’s teaching and research focus on 20th and 21st century Spanish and Latin American literature, critical theory and cultural studies, poetry, cyberliterature and cyberculture, and the relationship between literature, philosophy, science, and technology.

This book is available from the publisher and major online retailers.
