Miguel Iván Barradas



I graduated in Communication Sciences and I worked as a journalist for several public and corporate publications in Mexico, where I was awarded twice with the National Prize of Essay on Human Rights (in 2003 and 2004). I started the MA Hispanic Studies at Concordia in Fall 2010 and I am currently writing my thesis on "Horizons of Hispanic America in l’écriture transmigrante of Montreal." I have complemented my graduate studies teaching Spanish as a foreign language at the Cégep and University levels, as well as working as a teaching assistant at Concordia (SPAN 464, "Current Issues in the Hispanic Cultures: Spanish America").

As for my research interests, I am totally involved in the fields of cultural studies, transculture, Canadian identities, Hispanic-Canadian literature, oral history and digital storytelling. I am also passionate about Spanish grammar and the cultural content in language teaching. Regarding my hobbies and not so academic activities (yes- I do still have a life), I spend most of the time improving my Hispanic-Québécois accent and I also enjoy listening to Canadian indie/folk/country singers-songwriters.
