Dr. Michael Millar is a professor, undergraduate advisor and study abroad advisor in the Department of Spanish at Western Michigan University.

He is a specialist in Central American cultures. He has published several articles on the literatures of Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica and the Central American diaspora in the United States. His book, "Spaces of Representation" (Peter Lang, 2005), examines the role of literary, political and historical discourse in the struggle for social justice in Guatemala.

His current research investigates the relationship between current social conditions of the region and an emergent dystopian tendency in contemporary Central American literature.
