Dr. Daniela Meireles earned her Ph.D. in Iberian and Latin American Literatures and Cultures at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research on inter-American cultures focuses on contemporary Brazilian and Spanish-American literature and film and examines the ways such cultural production challenges mainstream discourses of hemispheric citizenship. She analyzes mainly how Brazilian cultural production adds to discourses of pan-Americanism and pan-latinidad. Professor Daniela Meireles joined the Department of Hispanic Studies at the College of Charleston in the Fall 2019 where she is currently an Instructor of Spanish and Portuguese and has been serving the Department as part of the Portuguese Program Steering Committee and co-advising the National Portuguese Honor Society Phi Lambda Beta. She also advises the Portuguese Club at CofC. More recently, Dr. Meireles became a Global Scholar Faculty Member.
