Ana Ros' areas of interests include the study of Latin American history, society and cultural production. Her research focuses on collective memory and civic-military relations in post dictatorial Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. Her first book, The Post-dictatorship Generation in Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay. Collective Memory and Cultural Production (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012) examines how different groups remember the dictatorial past in these three countries. More precisely, it illuminates how different narratives about the past interact in the public and private spheres, and how the younger generations reshape them in an attempt to better understand the present.
Ros' second book project explores how recent cultural production in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay deals with challenging civilian-military relations in the ongoing processes of democratic consolidation.
Her research has been published in national and international journals. At Binghamton University, Ros was twice awarded a fellowship by the Institute for the Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH).
Within the Department of Romance Languages Ros has worked closely with Spanish students as minor advisor, study abroad advisor and faculty advisor of Sigma Delta Phi (Spanish honor society). She was also Undergraduate Director and a member of the Rosefsky scholarship committee. Moreover, she holds a courtesy title in the Department of Comparative Literature and is affiliated with the Translation and Instruction program (TRIP) and the Latin American and Caribbean Area Studies program (LACAS).
