Luz Horne

Academic Director


See biography

I am the Academic Director of the Office of International Programs in San Andrés and work particularly on the Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS). I am also a Literature Professor in the Department of Humanities. I did my PhD in Latin American literature at Yale University and my Bachelor of Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires. I was a professor at Northwestern University and Cornell University. In my classes and research I work in the area of Latin American literature and visual culture. My book Real Literature, Transformations of realism in contemporary Latin American literature, examines the relationship between word and image within literature and how this relationship impacts the representation of reality. I enjoy working with international students in San Andrés because it enriches and diversifies the university space and teaching.

I have a bachelor degree in International Affairs from the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella. At the Office of International Programs, I am the Outgoing Coordinator for UdeSA undergraduate and graduate students. I had the incredible opportunity to do an exchange program in Australia during my last semester at university, which made me realize that international education allows one to grow both professionally and personally. At UdeSA we want you to take advantage of this opportunity and join us!

May Steward

Student of Law

I began working in the Office of International Programs in 2018 and I am very thankful for the opportunity that it has given me to develop myself in a global environment, a perspective with which I strongly identify being bicultural. I personally know how enriching it is to live and study abroad (I lived in the UK several years) so I am pleased to know that I am helping others experience what I did.
