Andrés IBARRA CORDERO is a predoctoral visiting fellow at ADHUC—Centre de Recerca Teoria, Gènere, Sexualitat. Graduated with honors in English Studies at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, with an MA in Comparative Literature from King’s College London, he has specialized in comparative literature, literary theory, gender studies and queer theory. He is based at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA), University of Amsterdam. His doctoral dissertation, supervised by Prof. Shelley Godsland and Dr. Murat Aydemir, examines literary representations of queer chronotopes in contemporary English and Spanish fiction. This comparative perspective draws on Bakhtin’s concept of the chronotope to approach textual configurations that, following queer theory’s turn on temporalities, are at odds with normative and hegemonic spatiotemporal world-views. Therefore, the chronotope is a textual optic to read queer spatiotemporal experiences. Although contemporary, the texts analysed follow different literary traditions of sexual dissidence: decadent-maudit, camp, and homophile; yet, they coexist in what a queer time.
