Jennifer Prince is a PhD candidate in the Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages Program and the Women’s Studies Certificate Program at the Graduate Center, CUNY, in New York City. She specializes in women writing the Spanish Civil War and 20th and 21st century Peninsular literature. Her transatlantic focus includes the texts of American writers present in Spain during the war and the inscription of women into the conflict through the novels of women Spanish novelists of the 21st Century.
Jen is originally from Michigan where she graduated from Wylie E. Groves High School in Birmingham in 2001. She received her BA in Spanish and K-12 Education in 2006 from John Carroll University outside of Cleveland, Ohio, and taught in Parma, Ohio, for two years before moving to New York. Jen completed an MA in Spanish in 2010 from Hunter College, CUNY, in New York City.
Currently, Jen lives in New York City with her fiancé and their malevolent cat, Q. After logging thousands of hours as a competitive swimmer and then a swim coach, Jen has switched to the sport she vowed never to do: running. In her free time she can often be found making a mess in the kitchen baking goodies for her friends and colleagues.
