Gabriel Restrepo Parradopicture_gabriel-r.jpeg

Gabriel obtained a double B.A in Philosophy and Literature (2016) and a M.A in Philosophy (2017) from Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. During this time, his research focused on the poetry of Idea Vilariño and, on the philosophical side, on classical American pragmatism. Most recently, he completed an Erasmus Mundus M.A in Crossways in Cultural Narratives (2020) from Università di Bergamo, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and University of St Andrews. For this M.A, he wrote a thesis in which he explored the early narrative of Uruguayan author Mario Levrero in relation to postmodernism and theories of space. His areas of interest include pragmatism, ecocriticism, and philosophy of science. Within this framework, he would like to study Latin American science fiction and horror. Gabriel joined the Ph.D in Spanish and Portuguese at Northwestern University in 2020.
