Dr. Janecki’s interest in Hispanic culture stems from her childhood in Chicago and a most-influential Year Abroad experience in Madrid as an undergraduate. Since then she has returned to Spain several times for visits, research and work as the Assistant Director of a Study Abroad Program in Barcelona. She also has spent considerable time in Argentina. She started teaching at UW-L in 2006 upon finishing her doctorate in Modern Spanish Literature with an emphasis in Art History from UW-Madison.
Dr. Janecki teaches a variety of classes including Spanish Civilization and Culture, Introduction to Hispanic Literature, Modern Spanish Literature and Intermediate Spanish Language. Her research interests focus on Avant-garde movements, especially Surrealism, as well as Spanish and Latin American Cinema. She also is interested in Computer Assisted Language Learning and uses a Wiki in almost every class! For fun she enjoys travelling, especially to Argentina and Spain, and likes to organize study abroad programs and take students to these countries too!
