A native of Argentina, Paulo Boero grew up in Patagonia. His family moved to Nashville when he was young, and Music City has become his second home.
Paulo attended high school in Nashville and then graduated from Belmont University, where he studied European History and French. After Belmont, Paulo decided to study Spanish American literature and second language acquisition at the University of Kansas. There, he earned a Master’s degree in Spanish Literature and a second M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction. At the University of Kansas, Professor Boero also completed his doctoral studies in Spanish American Literature, with an emphasis in contemporary Argentine fiction.
To date, Professor Boero continues to study how issues of national identity manifest themselves in contemporary Spanish American literature and film. In the area of foreign language pedagogy, Paulo studies and develops instructional models designed to increase the linguistic and socio-cultural proficiency of students of Spanish.
