Rafael Reyes-Ruiz

Rafael Reyes-Ruiz is a Colombian-American bilingual author, scholar, translator and editor. He holds a PhD in Anthropology from the New School for Social Research in New York. He taught at Oberlin College (2001-2004) and Zayed University in Dubai (2004-2013). He edited Encounters, a peer-reviewed journal/book series from 2008 to 2013. He has published scholarship and fiction in peer-reviewed and literary venues, including journal articles, book chapters, short stories and novels. Rafael is the author of the Roppongi Crossings trilogy, which portrays the lives of rootless expatriates in Japan who are ceaselessly searching for themselves and others.
