Osvaldo Oyola

After a nearly 10-year detour into web development following receiving his B.A. from SUNY New Paltz in 1997, Osvaldo Oyola completed his M.A. in English at Brooklyn College in 2008. He is currently a doctoral candidate in English at SUNY Binghamton, and his interests in race, music, comic books and gaming inform his work investigating how popular culture and collection collaborate in concepts of ethnic and gender identity in contemporary American literature. In his master’s thesis, “Collection, Identity and the Narratives of Brooklyn,” he explored how the unfixed and non-linear narratives of superhero comic books inform concepts of authentic identity in the gentrified landscape of Jonathan Lethem’s The Fortress of Solitude. Osvaldo regularly posts brief(ish) thoughts on music and comics on his blog, The Middle Spaces.
