About Me

Alejandra zAMBRANO

Dean, School of Literature, Universidad de las Artes

In 2021, I was appointed as Dean of the School of Literature at Universidad de las Artes. Universidad de las Artes del Ecuador, founded in 2013 and located in the historic center of the port of Guayaquil, is the first and only public university in the country committed to an intercultural education in the arts.

My current research focuses on the history of Ecuadorian Children’s Literature and community-based arts pedagogies. Some of the undergraduate classes I teach are: Ecuadorian Poetry, Poetry and Film, Children’s and Youth Literature, Ecuadorian Children’s Literature, Brazilian Literature, Introduction to Fiction, Oral History and Digital Storytelling, and Literary Essay.
