Andrea Jeftanovic

Andrea Jeftanovic (b. Santiago de Chile, 1970) is a Chilean author, sociologist and academic.

Jeftanovic was three when the September 11, 1973 Chilean military coup took place and she grew up under Augusto Pinochet's military regime. Jeftanovic has commented that the 17 years of military dictatorship that Chileans lived under had a profound effect on the development of a Chilean identity, by interrupting how Chileans perceive themselves or how the world perceives Chile.

She graduated from the Universidad Católica in social science and earned a doctorate in Hispanic-American literature from the University of California, Berkeley. She has held an academic post at the University Diego Portales.

Jeftanovic is the daughter of a Serbian immigrant and a Jewish mother.
