Jose Dario Castellanos Melendez
I am a PhD candidate in the Spanish program. I graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá with a B.A. in Literary Studies and a minor in History. I am part of the GLOBES Certificate Program in Environment and Society, and a core member of the Notre Dame Environmental Humanities Initiative. Before coming to Notre Dame, I worked as a literary critic and magazine editor (2013-2020), and also as a highschool teacher and curriculum coordinator for Spanish and Literature (2014-2018).
