CV, Ann Warner-Ault

Ann Warner-Ault received her M.A. and Ph.D. in Spanish from Columbia University with a focus on Latin American literature and culture. She has presented and published on a range of topics including avant-garde art and literature, community-engaged learning, digital humanities, and study abroad. Ann led the TCNJ semester in Spain in 2015 and a TCNJ study tour to Peru in 2018. In 2016-2017 she served as interim assistant dean for The School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Ann received a New Jersey Manufacturers grant for 2018-2019 to work with TCNJ students, Dr. Susan Ryan and Trenton’s Puerto Rican community to create short documentaries about the history of Puerto Ricans in Trenton. She is currently collaborating with Dr. Robert McGreevey, Isabel Kentengian and several community organizations in Trenton to implement a large-scale oral history project with Trenton’s Latinx community.
