Dr Yairen Jerez Columbié (BA, MA, PGCTL, PhD) joined the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies in 2021 as Assistant Professor in Latin American Studies and Intercultural Communication and Deputy Director of the Centre for Global Intercultural Communications. Before joining TCD, she taught in the Universitat de Girona and University College Cork, where she also led interdisciplinary research at the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine Research and Innovation (MaREI) and the Environmental Research Institute. Dr Jerez Columbié received her BA and MA from the Universitat de Girona after studying at the Universidad de La Habana, and obtained her PhD from University College Cork for a dissertation on cultural theories emerging from journalistic, philosophical, artistic and legal texts intertwined with nation-making processes in Latin America and Europe. She brings to TCD her experience in designing and undertaking research and teaching that connects artists, intellectuals, scientists, communities, and policymakers to support equity, diversity and inclusion in knowledge-making processes, international partnerships and the fair public uptake and use of science and technology. Dr Jerez Columbié welcomes PhD and Masters proposals in any area of twenty-first, twentieth and nineteenth century Latin American and Caribbean Studies, as well as Transatlantic Hispanic and Catalan Studies. She is interested in supervising and co-supervising interdisciplinary projects at the intersections between Cultural and Media Studies, New World Philosophies and Critical Theory, Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies, Ecocriticism and the Environmental Humanities.

Dr Yairen Jerez Columbié works at the intersection between Cultural Studies, Communication and Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies. Her publications investigate intercultural communication, fluid identities, cultural translation, decolonial ecologies and eco-criticism in diverse countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as in Catalonia and Ireland. She led interdisciplinary research at the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine Research and Innovation (MaREI) to inform Irish and European environmental policies. Her research on the National Dialogue on Climate Action in Ireland will inform Ireland's strategy for Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE), as the result of the Environmental Protection Agency-funded project Connecting People to Climate Change Action: Longitudinal Analysis for Informing Participatory Frameworks in the NDCA (C-CHANGE) (2020-21). Her current research focuses on the role of Latin American and Caribbean epistemologies in communicating climate change and shaping global responses to environmental challenges. Dr Jerez Columbié brings to TCD her experience in designing and undertaking research that connects artists, intellectuals, scientists, communities and policymakers to support equity, diversity and inclusion in knowledge-making processes, international partnerships and the fair public uptake and use of science and technology. Her research interests include although are not limited to: Intercultural Communication; Environmental Humanities and Ecocriticism; Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies; Ecofeminism; Critical Theory and New World Philosophies; Postcolonial Intellectual History; Migration, Diaspora and Exile; Creative Nonfiction and Ecopoetry.
