Álex obtained his degree in Literary Studies from Universidad Nacional de Colombia, with a thesis on Colombian costumbrismo. Nonetheless, his main interest are Renaissance Iberian literature, humanism, and the interaction of Classical tradition with the vernacular. He spent the academic year 2015-6 learning Greek and Latin at the Accademia Vivarium Novum at Rome: the unique place in the world where Latin must be used in all activities on a daily basis!
