Bio: 

Todd began his career with a BA in Spanish from Brigham Young University (Magna Cum Laude 2005) and immediately followed with an MA in Spanish Peninsular Literature (2007), also from BYU. The title of his Master's thesis is The Postmodern Spanish Hero’s Journey: Compassion and Postmodernism in Contemporary Spain. His dissertation, entitled Open Wounds: Reading Contemporary Novels of War, Repression, and Memory in Four Rural Spanish Communities, focuses on the the intersection of memory, literature, and place through a study of the reception of several contemporary novels of memory in the communities they describe. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his three children and his wife, Betty. He is also an avid runner.
