Bienvenidos/Bem-vindos/Welcome to Casa Émory: The Spanish & Portuguese House!
Casa Émory is a theme residence for students who wish to broaden their knowledge of Spanish and/or Portuguese outside of the classroom setting. It's the perfect place to live on campus while keeping up everyday use of the languages as well as contact with the cultures of the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking world.
Casa Émory offers a comfortable and family-like environment, where the focus on "living in" Spanish and Portuguese is reinforced by daily interaction with resident language instructors from Spain and Brazil.
Residents collaborate with Emory's Department of Spanish and Portuguese to host a variety of cultural events throughout the year, many of which are open to the public and co-sponsored by Amigos of Casa Émory and other Latino/Hispanic organizations and institutions.
Spanish and Portuguese majors and minors, native and heritage speakers, students who are planning to study abroad or have returned from abroad, and others with a strong interest in the Ibero-American world are encouraged to apply.

Visiting Spanish Instructor
Spanish and Portuguese Department
Office: Callaway S503
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.

Casa Émory es un espacio cuyo sentido último es abrir una puerta a la convivencia y al intercambio cultural a aquellos estudiantes que estén interesados en profundizar o simplemente en compartir algún aspecto relacionado con las culturas española e hispanoamericana.
