This is the website of Professor Elena del Río Parra.

My research is centered on Early Modern Hispanic Studies, from an Intellectual History perspective. I am based at the Department of Modern & Classical Languages, Georgia State University, Atlanta.

Here you will find posts on my current research, academic activities, and publications. I will also include other contents regarding the strange, unusual, and accidental. This site’s four sections loosely correspond to reviews (Notæ); thoughts on categories (Taxonomica); manifestations of the extreme (Overkill); and theoretical perspectives (Theorema).

Should you want to be bothered, here is my academic curriculum vitae. Please, feel free to enrich the discussion with your comments.
