Research interests

I am currently writing a book on the Mexican multimedia writer and artist Ana Clavel. The monograph will be published in 2014 with Legenda, Oxford, Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Cultures 6. I received a British Academy Small Grants of £2070 to conduct research in Mexico City in April 2008 on the multimedia works of Ana Clavel and served as basis of this monograph.

Publicity of monograph: and  

Multimedia women: I am formulating a new research project on the works of women writers and artists from the Spanish speaking world whose works straddle multiple disciplines (literature, art performance, photography, video, art installation, cyberspace). The research I conducted in Mexico City as part of the BA award will also form the basis of this project. This is a collaborative research project with Dr Sarah Bowskill (University of Swansea) and the intended research outputs include a co-written book and co-edited book, articles and conferences.

I have research expertise in the following areas and would therefore like to hear from applicants interested in:

  • Latin(o) American Women writers and artists 
  • Latin(o) American Cultural Studies, Visual Arts, Multimedia Studies and Digital Humanities; Feminist (intersectional) theory; Queer Studies
  • Mexican (Revolutionary) writing, popular culture, cultural identity, ideology and gender; The Boom Mexicano Femenino.
