Virginia Ramos is a poet and doctoral student in the Comparative Literature department at Stanford University, California, US. She was born in Madrid, Spain, and currently resides in the United States, where she attended college at San Francisco State University and graduated with a B.A. in French and a M.A. in interdisciplinary Humanities with a focus in World Literature. She is currently working on a dissertation on the relationship between space and narrative in 20th and 21st century with a particular emphasis on modernist and contemporary texts. Her interests center on 20th century poetics, poetry, lyrical novel, and multi-genre texts.She works in Spanish, English, French and German Literatures, primarily. She is interested in poetics of liminality and comparative readings that allow for the 'multiplication' of language, the question of “form as content”, “space as content” and the relationship with historical and societal swifts through the creation of novel narrative and poetry with an attention to physical space, often urban. Her work aims to contrast and theorize current and future trends of transnational thought globally.
