Dr. Jennie Daniels Professor of World Language Literature and Culture
I teach a variety of classes at the C of I, including Spanish language, Food and Culture, and advanced courses on the study of literature and culture. Courses like Democracy and Dictatorship, Indigenous Studies, Crime Fiction, and Medical Humanities dove-tail with my research interests in the representation of social exclusion and marginalization. I also often lead study away experiences to Spanish-speaking countries during January term, which is a great way to get to know students and encourage their language development. When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading, hiking, and exploring Idaho.
A variety of professional experiences have influenced the development of my research and career. After from graduating college, I worked as a Behavioral Consultant for people with developmental disabilities in San Diego County, and investigated sea life encrusted on boat hulls in California and Baja California, Mexico. During graduate school at the University of California, San Diego, I taught Peninsular and Latin American literature courses and Spanish language. Prior to joining the faculty at the C of I, I taught Spanish, Portuguese, and Peninsular Literature at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL.
