Membership of The Institute for the Study of Language and Society (ISLS)
After working as Assistant Professor (1994-2000) and then Associate Professor of Spanish (2000-2006) at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, I joined Aston University as Head of Spanish in 2006. I am the author of Surrealismo en la poesía española de posguerra (Visor, 1997) and co-editor of Sexualidad y escritura (Anthropos, 2002). I have published on contemporary Spanish poetry, women writers and cultural studies. My current research focuses on the representation of Alzheimer’s disease in Spanish film, fiction and non-fiction narrative, and poetry, and emphasizes how cultural texts have the power of creating, sustaining, and changing meanings of AD.
I welcome PhD applications in any area related to my research.
