Carmín Quijano is a critical educator, linguistic anthropologist, and digital ethnographer from Puerto Rico and New York. She teaches undergraduate courses of romance languages at Hunter College (CUNY, New York) and works as curriculum writer at CENTRO. She is an active member of the Glotopolítica group, a cluster of scholars from Latin America, Europe and the U.S. who study the intersection of language and politics. Carmín’s research examines the relationship between naming and the crafting of gendered subjectivities in Puerto Rican institutions, digital newspapers, and social media. More concretely, she incorporates a semiotic approach to understand the feminization of job titles and how they influence the interpretation of women’s labor in Puerto Rico during the 21st century.
