Belinda Linn Rincón is an Associate Professor in the departments of Latin American and Latina/o Studies and English at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY. She specializes in Chicanx and Latinx literary and cultural studies, Latina feminisms, and war and militarism. Her book Bodies at War: Genealogies of Militarism in Chicana Literature and Culture(2017, University of Arizona Press) examines the rise of neoliberal militarism from the early 1970s to the present and its political, ontological, and aesthetic implications for the Chicanx community. Through Chicana art, activism, and writing, Bodies at War offers a visionary foundation for an antiwar feminist politic. Rincón has published articles in Modern Fiction Studies and Latino Studies. In 2015, she won the Antonia I. Castañeda Essay Award given by the National Association for Chicana and Chicano Studies for her article in Women’s Studies Quarterly. She is the co-founder of the Biennial Latina/o Literary Theory and Criticism Conference.
