Bernadine Hernández holds a PhD in Literature with a concentration in Cultural Studies and Literatures in English from the University of California, San Diego.  Her scholarship and teaching focuses on intersection of American literary production, Chicana feminism, and critical gender and sexuality studies.  More specifically, her work traces the material and social relations and legacies of racialized gender and sexuality and sexual economies from 1870 to the contemporary moment in the hemispheric Southwest by examining multiple empires and governances, Spanish, Mexican, and U.S.  Her specialization in cultural studies informs her teaching pedagogy and focuses on the late nineteenth-century and twentieth century American literature, the U.S./Mexico border, and gender and sexuality.
