Nora Benedict


Nora Benedict is an assistant professor of Spanish and Digital Humanities at the University of Georgia. Prior to arriving in Athens, GA, she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Center for Digital Humanities at Princeton. She researches twentieth-century Latin American literature with a focus on book history. Her first book, _Borges and the Literary Marketplace_ (Yale University Press, 2021), analyzes the marked presence of books, periodicals, and other print mediums in Jorge Luis Borges’s life by analyzing the physical features of his publications. In addition to this book, she’s also co-editing the Oxford Handbook of Jorge Luis Borges and working on a second project, _Taking a Page from Their Books: Latin American Editors and Global Publishing Trends_, that examines how international publishing firms in the Global North capitalized on the economic, political, and cultural opportunities available to them in the book industry in the Global South, specifically developing countries in Latin America.

"Two key aspects of my professional development as an academic are curiosity and an openness to unanticipated opportunities. Being a part of the Princeton community allowed me to embrace these qualities by participating in talks and workshops, meeting countless scholars and professionals from around the globe, and cultivating diverse networks that would serve me well beyond my time in New Jersey."
