Professor Nouzeilles has taught at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, Trinity College (CT), and the University of Nottimgham (UK). Her professional publications include several essays on scientific and literary fictions of pathology, hysteria and iconography, and narrative and modernity in Latin America. Her book Ficciones Somaticas: Naturalismo, Nacionalism y Politicas Medicas del Cuerpo (Beatriz Viterbo Editora, 2000) studies the interplay of medical and literary discourses of disease and its disciplinary fictions in fin-de-siècle Argentina. She is co-editor of The Argentina Reader: History, Culture and Politics (Duke University Press, 2002) and Editor of El Umbral de la Cultura: Naturaleza, Cuerpo y Paisaje (Editorial Paidos, 2002). Her new project, The Uttermost End of the World: Patagonia Nature in Global Perspective, focuses on the production of space and the geographical imagination in scientific, military, touristic and literary materials about Patagonia, covering from travel logs and maps to novels, photographs, and film. Since 1998, she has been executive co-editor of the interdisciplinary journal Nepantla. Views from South.
