Professor Adorno has done groundbreaking work in Latin American literary studies and has won several awards for it. Her scholarly work focuses on the field of literary cultural production in colonial Latin America. Her recent books explore the Spanish writings about the New World that includes both a prize-winning, three-volume book on early Spanish exploration of the area now part of the U.S. Southwest, and one that takes up the role that the historical, theoretical, and polemical works written during the colonial period in Latin America have played in the history of Latin American literature and thought. In November, she was appointed to the National Council on the Humanities.
