Erika Rodriguez teaches English and Spanish courses on public humanities, race in the global hispanophone, and the politics of contagion. She also develops public-facing programming through her work as the Assistant Director of the New Commons Project. Her current book project, Crip Time in Fin-de-siècle Spain: Disability, Degeneration, and Eugenics, emphasizes the construction of disability in relation to time, scrutinizing the connective tissue between nineteenth-century theories of degeneration and the growing impulse toward eugenics that would arise in the early twentieth century. Publications related to this and other projects are forthcoming in Disability Studies Quarterly, Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos, and Hispanic Research Journal.
