View Curriculum Vitae


Adrianna M. Santos (she/her/ella) earned a B.A. in English from the University of Texas at Austin and M.A. and Ph.D. in Chicana/o Studies with a doctoral emphasis in Feminist Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. Santos is an associate professor of English at Texas A&M University-San Antonio, faculty advisor for the Mexican American Student Association, and co-coordinator of the Mexican American, Latinx, and Borderlands Studies interdisciplinary minor. Her forthcoming book Trauma and Healing in the Literary Borderlands: Beyond Survival (Palgrave 2022) addresses often-eclipsed legacies of colonial violence and examines Chicana survival narratives as a critical facet of social justice work, making trauma visible within contexts of imperialism, indigeneity, and immigration, and recognizable to communities that continue to grapple with the wounds of such trauma. Dr. Santos has published in the journals of Aztlán, Chicana/Latina Studies, Journal of Latina Critical Feminism, and Shakespeare Bulletin with chapters in El Mundo Zurdo (Aunt Lute 2015), Teaching Mexicana and Chicana Writers of the Twentieth Century (MLA 2020), Nerds Goths, Geeks, and Freaks: Outsiders in Chicanx/Latinx Young Adult Literature (Mississippi 2020), and Shakespeare and Latinidad (Edinburgh 2021). She is co-editor of The Bard in the Borderlands: An Anthology of Shakespeare Appropriations en La Frontera (Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies Press 2023) with Drs. Katherine Gillen (A&M-SA) and Kathryn Vomero Santos (Trinity University).
