Research interests

My research interests include contemporary Spanish poetry, theatre and film from the critical perspectives of Gender and Queer Studies.  

My recently published monograph Queering Lorca’s Duende: Desire, Death, Intermediality (Legenda, 2022) proposes a queer reading of Federico García Lorca’s later poetry, theatre, drawings and film script. My current research project examines the representation of adolescents and young adults in twenty-first-century Hispanic film, focusing on queer identities and on emerging Spanish and Argentinian filmmakers. Its aim is to map millennial Hispanic film and digital television within global screen cultures, assessing its unique critical position vis-à-vis the intersection of gender, sexual and national identities.

My wider research interests are Hispanic queer and LGBTQ+ literature, intermediality and word-image relations in Hispanic and World Literature and Visual Culture, and contemporary Hispanic cinema with a focus on queer filmmaking. My expertise ranges from twentieth-century Hispanic poetics, queer writings and multimedia artists to twentieth-century and contemporary Spanish cinema.

I teach courses on Hispanic literature, cinema, language, translation and culture. My teaching practice provides a link between Spanish literary and visual cultures, queer theory and translation in the Hispanic Studies and World and Comparative Literature areas, also offering great opportunities for intercultural and transnational awareness, critical thinking, interdisciplinarity and interaction within the academic community and beyond.
