José Miguel Martínez Torrejón

José Miguel Martínez Torrejón is a Distinguished Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at Queens College and the Graduate Center, CUNY. His teaching and research revolve around three main areas, seen as inexcusably intertwined and belonging to the same context: Peninsular Medieval-Golden Age Literature, Colonial Historiography, and various aspects of the Portuguese Renaissance. He uses philological and rhetorical analysis to study the history of ideas and the political uses of literature.
