ZAMORA’S WORK ‘MIXES AND MATCHES’ DISCIPLINES
UH wouldn’t have it any other way, and her colleagues and students in the English, history and art departments are more than happy to share this professor of comparative literature and art history.
Now, they’re sharing a new John and Rebecca Moores Professor.
The multidisciplinary approach of Zamora’s latest book, “The Inordinate Eye: New World Baroque and Latin American Fiction,” garnered recognition as a (London) Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year and won the Levin Prize from the American Comparative Literature Association, awarded to the best book in comparative literature criticism over the previous two-year period.
The John and Rebecca Moores Professor is a five-year renewable award that carries a $10,000 annual stipend and is given to faculty who are outstanding in teaching, research and service.
