About Ruben Zecena

Ruben Zecena is pictured.

Ruben Zecena is an assistant professor of English at Texas State University. He explores the cultural productions of queer and trans migrants as important avenues for imagining the world differently.

Born in El Salvador, Ruben is on a constant search for “home” and specializes in queer migration studies, border studies, and Latinx literature and culture. His scholarship appears or is forthcoming in WSQ: Women’s Studies Quarterly, Constellations: A Cultural Rhetorics Publishing Space, Diálogo, an Interdisciplinary Studies Journal, Border-Lines, amongst others. He is currently working on a book tentatively titled, Impossible Possibilities: The Unruly Imaginaries of Queer and Trans Migrants, that analyzes how queer and trans migrants in the U.S. forge a sense of self within and against the frameworks of the nation-state.
