About Parker

Parker specializes in contemporary Latin American Women's and Queer literature and visual culture. His dissertation, "Abanico de memorias: Queering Dictatorship in Latin America" examines gender violence in 21st Century literature and film in Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay and argues that recent cultural production is queering conceptual binaries in relation to time, human rights and memory.

At UNC, Parker teaches courses in Spanish and Portuguese and is a Safe Zone facilitator through the LGBTQ Center. Parker has studied in Córdoba, Argentina and São, Paulo Brazil and worked professionally in Peru, Argentina and Spain.
