Ana Gabriela Hernández-González  completed her Ph.D. in Spanish at University of New Mexico (2017), and her M.A. in Hispanic Literature at University of New Mexico (2011). 

Prior to joining the faculty at Emory University in 2017, Dr. Hernández held positions at the University of New Mexico and the Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua.

Dr. Hernández' primary scholarly focus is in textual representations of magical/religious women in Mexican cultural memory. In her dissertation, Dr Hernandez specifically studies how magical/religious women have been represented in three different discourses that construct cultural identities in Mexico: colonial discourse (XVI-XVII Centuries), the discourse of national consolidation (XIX-XX centuries) and postcolonial discourse (XX-XIX Centuries). Her project is a multidisciplinary study that employs historical, social and literary approaches to understand the importance of recognizing and comprehending Latin America’s colonial past to interpret the present.

She has published articles in iMex, Mexico Interdisciplinario, (Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, March 2016), Confluencia Revista Hispánica de Cultura y Literatura (University of Northern Colorado, Spring 2016), and Transgresión Femenina.
