Isabel Guzzardo Tamargo

Isabel Guzzardo Tamargo is currently a doctoral candidate in the Graduate Program of Literatures in English at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. Her dissertation explores how contemporary queer and femme Caribbean literature deploys marronage as a tactic that challenges the archipelago’s state of indebtedness and non-sovereignty. Her most recent publications include “Resignifying Shame and Abjection: A Queer Cultural Sovereignty in Manuel Ramos Otero’s Short Stories,” which appeared in Confluencia: Revista Hispánica de Cultura y Literatura, and “Neo Maroon Narratives and Legacies of (Non)Sovereignty,” published in The University of the West Indies’ Social and Economic Studies.
