Professor of Romance Studies (Spanish) & Director of the Moore Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program
Department of Romance Studies

Dr. Perelmuter regularly teaches a first-year honors seminar about Latin@ literature and culture (ROML055H, “Writing with an accent: Latino Literature and Culture”), where students are exposed to the many faces/ethnicities of Hispanics living in the United States and their literary and cultural production.She also teaches a course on the literary and cultural output of Cubans living in the US (SPAN 389, “Los cubanos en la diáspora: literatura y cultura”). For MURAP (murap.unc.edu) she recruits college students, many of whom are Latinos, and offer them an intensive summer research program to prepare them to pursue doctorates in the humanities, social sciences or fine arts and eventually join the ranks of academia. The goal of the program is to diversify doctoral programs and academia, and it has had great success in doing that, thus leading Latino students to productive and successful careers.
