Dr. Rodríguez’s theoretical, applied, and creative interests coil around the question of how we encounter and make sense of difference. She draws from psychoanalysis, geography and the arts to think about the wide range of strategies people, cities, and nations employ–consciously or unconsciously–to confront their multiple others, whether these others are spatial, sensorial, social or linguistic. A Latin Americanist, her area of specialty is Mexico, and she works in both Spanish and English. Currently, she is exploring to what extent decolonial and critical global citizenship perspectives might inform executive leadership development and coaching and what the impact of such work might be.
