Lázaro Lima is a Professor of Latinx Studies in the Department of Africana, Puerto Rican and Latino Studies at Hunter College, CUNY. Lázaro’s work encompasses teaching and research, with a deep interest in the intersections of Latinx cultural, intellectual, and political histories with discourses surrounding democratic rights, historical memory, and the commons. As an interdisciplinary scholar, he examines how ethnic and racialised public identities are experienced on an individual level, understood collectively, and portrayed within cultural industries and political communities. His research draws from the methodologies of American Studies, literary and visual cultural studies, race and ethnic studies, as well as gender and sexuality studies.

Lázaro has authored several books, including Being Brown: Sonia Sotomayor and the Latino Question (U of California Press, 2019), Ambientes: New Queer Latino Writing (with Felice Picano, U of Wisconsin Press, 2011), and The Latino Body: Crisis Identities in American Literary and Cultural Memory (NYU Press, 2007). His scholarship is published in both English and Spanish and has been featured in popular media, edited volumes, and academic journals, including American Literary History, The Journal of Transnational American Studies, Revista Iberoamericana, The Wallace Stevens Journal, A Contracorriente, and numerous other journals and public humanities platforms. Currently, he serves on the board of “The Journal of Transnational American Studies.”

Lázaro is also a filmmaker who co-wrote and executive produced the documentary film “Rubí: A DACA Dreamer in Trump’s America” (Deronda Productions, 2020), which aired on PBS and received a BEA “On-Location Documentary Award of Excellence.”
