Rafael Andúgar is a PhD candidate in Hispanic Literatures at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Originally from Barcelona, he earned his undergraduate and master’s degree in Comparative Literature at the University of Barcelona. His current project focuses on the relations between environmentalism and Latin American contemporary crime fiction, particularly how landscape and its affects play an important role in the noir genre as it enables reflection on environmental issues as well as complex emotions that arise from socioenvironmental polarization. His publications are forthcoming in a number of venues. His future research projects involve both the theorization of the Latin American eco-noir and the representation of environmental rhetoric in Catalan and Spanish literatures.
