Areas of Interest

My research focuses on Argentine literature and culture, with a particular emphasis on ideas of nationhood and relationships between history and literature. I am currently working on the representation of historical narratives in Argentine museums.

My PhD thesis examined rewritings of independence in contemporary Argentine literature, exploring the relationship between history, politics and literature in a corpus of six texts. I have also written on literary representations of the Falklands/Malvinas conflict within Argentina.


Undergraduate Teaching

I co-teach two first-year modules: SP1I1 (Icons of Spain and Latin America) and SP1SLAC (introduction to Spanish and Latin American Culture).

I convene and teach a second-year module on nineteenth-century history and culture in the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America (SP2TE, Transatlantic Exchanges).

I also contribute to a departmental module on global fantastic literature (ML2GF) and to second-year Spanish language teaching.
