Santiago Acosta


My academic work focuses on twentieth-century Venezuelan literature and visual culture. I am interested in how the cultural field mediates the global movements of power, energy, and capital that traverse the social body in nature exporting societies.

My courses introduce students to Hispanic cultures, from the fifteenth century to the present, with an emphasis on the ideological and historical processes at the root of climate change.

In Caracas, I was the founder and editor of El Salmón, a quarterly journal devoted to archival work on Venezuelan poetry, which won a National Book Award in 2010.

My most recent poetry collection is «Cuaderno de otra parte».
