Ana Leticia Fauri holds an M. A. and a Ph.D. in Literary Theory from Faculdade de Letras at PUCRS, in Brazil, and a second M.A. and Ph.D. Portuguese and Brazilian Studies from Brown University. Originally from Porto Alegre, Brazil, professor Fauri has lived, researched and taught in Brazil, in Portugal, and in the United States. She has published multiple articles and essays on Lusophone literature, and is currently working on the edition of a book on Erico Verissimo’s political thought, in which she analyzes the last novels by the southern Brazilian writer, and contrasts them with interviews and historical documents from several archives in Brazil and in the United States. Her research interests focus on the mechanisms by which governments’ repressive actions impacted 20th century literature, culture and history in Brazil and Portugal.
