Adjunct Professorial Lecturer
World Languages and Cultures
A native of Bolivia, Prof. Marin-Dale’s doctoral studies focused on corporate and international law. In recent years, her attention has turned to social issues concerning the indigenous peoples of South America, and she presently serves as a human rights consultant to various indigenous organizations. She has conducted over two decades of research on Andean themes, and teaches courses on the Andean colonial chronicles, Andean mythology, and Native Andean cultures. Her book entitled Decoding Andean Mythology (University of Utah Press, 2016) is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary analysis of the Native Andean oral tradition spanning five centuries and analyzes Native Andean mythology primarily from a symbolic and human rights perspective. It was nominated in 2017 for Best First Book in Native American and Indigenous Studies by the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association.
