Millicent A. Bolden received her B. A. in Psychology from Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Illinois. Nevertheless, an earlier interest in language and literature, awakened at Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, Massachusetts, compelled her to leave the social sciences and pursue graduate studies in Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This culminated in an M.A. and a PhD in Spanish American Literature and an MA Certificate in Latin American Studies.

As an Associate Professor of Spanish, Dr. Bolden has taught a wide range of courses including Elementary and Intermediate Spanish language, Introduction to Hispanic Literature, Advanced Spanish Grammar and Syntax, Introduction to Spanish Translation, Survey of Spanish American Literature, Spanish Senior Seminar, Introduction to Latin American Studies, and Cultural Perspectives. Among her research interests are Afro-Hispanic Literature and Culture, Latin American Women Writers, Fantastic Literature, and Latin American Culture. She has presented papers at numerous regional, national and international conferences, and has reviewed articles for publication for the Afro-Hispanic Review and the Delaware Review of Latin American Studies. In addition to on-going research, she has published a collection of critical essays, various articles and book reviews.
