Biography/History

Nancy Baden was a professor of Spanish and Portuguese at Cal State Fullerton from 1969 until 2003. Much of her work concentrated on Jorge Amado and literature produced under the period of Brazilian censorship. She published a book on the latter topic in 1999 titled The Muffled Cries: The Writer and Literature in Authoritarian Brazil 1964-1985. Raised in Brazil, Baden attended UCLA where she received a Ph.D. in Hispanic Languages and Literatures. In the 1960s, while Baden was still a UCLA graduate student, she began a correspondence with Amado that lasted until the mid-1990s. In 1969 she began teaching at Cal State Fullerton and eventually became Chair of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures. While at Cal State Fullerton Baden helped establish both the Portuguese and TESOL (Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages) programs and served as the President of the Friends of the Fullerton Arboretum from 2001-2003.
