Marlène Ramírez-Cancio | Associate Director of Arts & Media at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics.
Marlène has one of the coolest jobs in the entire national and perhaps even global landscape, of arts and culture. Really.

She earned a BA in Literature from Harvard; a MA in Comparative Literature with PhD coursework from Stanford; and an MFA in Creative Writing from New York University’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese.
Marlène is also known as Fulana, for the project Fulana, a Latina video + Performance Collective. Visit their site, they’re amazing.
