Research Interests

Amelia grew up on her family's farm outside of Lostant, Illinois. She obtained her B.A. from Notre Dame in 2018, double majoring in Honors Mathematics and Spanish. For her Spanish senior thesis, "The Gospel of Emiliano Zapata: Corridos and the Christian Emplotment of the Revolutionary Hero," she investigated songs and documentaries about Zapata, the Mexican Revolution, and Zapatismo. After graduating, she was awarded a Fulbright Teaching Grant and spent the 2018-9 academic year in Mexico City at the Benemérita Escuela Nacional de Maestros, a teacher training college. There, Amelia taught English classes at various levels, and also collaborated to create an English phonics workshop for teachers and a panel of Fulbrighters reflecting on their teaching experiences at normales. This year, she is back at Notre Dame working on her Master's in Literature in Spanish. Her research interests center around the monumental historical and literary figures of Mexico, and how they are used to create or complicate notions of national identity. In addition, she teaches Beginning Spanish and works at the University Writing Center as a graduate writing tutor.
