Jorge, originally from Lima, Peru, received a BA in Linguistics and Literature in 1996 and an MA in Linguistics in 2007, both from Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
His primary research interests are Peruvian colonial theatre written in Quechua and its relationship with some of the archetypal characters in the Spanish Golden Age literature, such as a trickster or a picaro. Additionally, Jorge is interested in how the sixteenth-century Spanish picaresque novel elements are reinterpreted in colonial Peruvian literature. With his doctoral dissertation, he is examining the eighteenth-century Quechua dramas that portray a devil’s bargain.
He has ample experience with teaching. He has taught Span 3050 (Introduction to Spanish Linguistics), Span 3011 (Spanish Grammar, Composition, and Comprehension for Heritage Speakers), and Span 3020 (Advanced Composition and Conversation). Besides, he designed and is currently teaching Span 2002e (Online Intermediate Spanish II).
He serves as an Editorial Assistant for the Bulletin of the Comediantes since 2017. He is conducting his research under Dr. Elizabeth Wright’s direction. Dr. José Antonio Rodríguez Garrido is an external member of his dissertation committee.
