Rubén Gallo is the Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor in Language, Literature, and Civilization of Spain[1][2] at Princeton University, specializing in modern and contemporary Spanish America.[3] He also serves as Professor of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Cultures, and has directed Princeton's program in Latin American Studies since 2008. He holds a B.A. in English from Yale University and a Ph.D. in comparative literature from Columbia University.[3]

At Princeton, he has organized conferences on "Radio and the Avant-Garde" (2003) and "Stadiums: Athletics, and Aesthetics" (2004), and "Freud and 20th Century Culture" (2010)[4]

In the winter semester of 2009–2010, Gallo was the Fulbright–Freud Visiting Lecturer in Psychoanalysis at the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, Austria, and he presented the seminar "Freud at Large: The Cultural Reception of Psychoanalysis in Latin America and Beyond" in the Institute for History at the University of Vienna.[5][6] He now serves on the board of directors of the Freud Museum Vienna.[3] He decided to write a book about Freud's relationship with Mexico and Freud's influence on Mexican poets and artists, because while there were already books about Freud in Russia, France, and Argentina, there was none about Mexico.[5] He first became acquainted with Freud through a seminar of Julia Kristeva.[7]

Gallo's Princeton faculty page states that "he teaches courses on Freud, the avant-garde, and other aspects of twentieth-century culture".[3]
