    Katie Trostel earned a PhD in literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Her dissertation project, “Memoryscapes: Women Chart the Post-Trauma City in 20th- and 21st- Century Latin America,” examines the treatment of urban space and memories of state-sponsored violence in the works of Latin American women writers of the post-trauma or post-dictatorship generation. Her research interests include 20th and 21st century Latin American literature, women’s writing, Jewish studies, memory and trauma studies, memorials and monuments, city spaces, haunting, and ruins. Her work has been published in the journals “The Yearbook of Comparative Literature” and “Partial Answers.”
