POET AND SCHOLAR
Ximena Keogh Serrano is a poet and transdisciplinary scholar. Born in Quito, Ecuador, and now based in Portland, Oregon, Ximena’s writing embraces a movement between disciplines and languages.
Her areas of specialization lie at the intersection of Latin American and U.S. Latinx literary and cultural studies and studies in gender and sexuality. In her research more broadly, she explores themes of borders, migration, and belonging across a range of literary texts, visual art, film, and performance in the Americas.
She is an assistant professor in the Department of World Languages and Literatures and the Latinx Studies Program at Pacific University in Oregon.
