    Hi, As I am on the ballot for the Forum Executive Committee, I was invited to introduce myself here in the Commons.

    I work on representations of reality in contemporary Latin American cultural production, in particular in Mexican theatre and drama, though I write about South American theatre, including Brazilian, as well.

    My goals for the LLC 20th- and 21st-Century Latin America include advocating for improvement in employment conditions — especially recognition for adjunct professors. In this forum in particular, I support outreach to scholars working in Latin America and increased dialogue throughout the hemisphere.

    If you’d like to get in touch, please write to me at wardjulie@ou.edu
