Bio

Dr. León holds a Masters in Language Teaching-Spanish and a Ph.D. in Spanish Literature and Culture from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Dr. León’s teaching experience includes beginning, intermediate and advanced Spanish courses in language, Latin American, Spanish and Chicanx literature, cultural studies, gender studies, writing/composition, Spanish for professional purposes, and Latin American & Spanish contemporary film. In the summer of 2019, he also led a study abroad program with CSU-Pueblo students to Todos Santos, México.

His publications analyze literary and cinematographic texts that portray the experiences of Latin American and sub-Saharan immigrants in Spain and the ways in which the intersection of race and gender shapes those experiences. He has presented his research in over 19 national and international academic conferences such as the MLA, the Midwest MLA, the Rocky Mountain MLA, MACHL, the Thinking Andean Symposium at U.Penn, the Kentucky Foreign Language Conference, the 25th International Conference of Europeanists, the Northeast MLA, amongst others.

Dr. León is thrilled to teach at a Hispanic Serving Institution such as CSU-Pueblo and to not only be a teacher, but also a mentor to all students including first-generation college students like himself.
