Guadalupe Martí-Peña, of Pennsylvania State University (University Park), currently teaches courses in Spanish-American Contemporary Narrative and Cultural/Literary Critical Theory. Her research interests include Spanish American writers whose intertextual writings bridge the gap between high and low cultural practices (especially Manuel Puig and Mario Vargas Llosa), as well inter-art discourses and detective fiction. She published the first comprehensive annotated bibliography on Puig’s criticism, which led to her collaboration on the critical edition of El beso de la mujer araña under the direction of Argentine critics José Amícola and Jorge Panesi. She also has collaborated on two monographic works on Vargas Llosa and Puig (Mario Vargas Llosa: perspectivas críticas and El mundo femenino en la obra de Manuel Puig). She is the author of several articles in such journals as the Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, the Journal of Iberian and Latin American Studies, Romance Notes, Revista Iberoamericana, Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos, Hispamérica, and Chasqui.
