I’m interested in XIX and XX century Peninsular literature with a special focus on La generación del 98 and La generación del 27. In particular, I’m interested in how sexuality is expressed and explored in rural milieus with a particular emphasis in Federico García Lorca’s plays and poetry. I’m interested in analyzing the unseen aspects in relationships and how the «other» is created in traditional rural settings in literature and its correlation to the reality of country life. Lately, I’ve been working on homosexual themes found in Lorca’s plays as well as researching the lives of other gay writers in XIX and XX century Spain.
