My primary research interests are Transatlantic Studies (20th and 21st century Spanish Peninsular and Mexican literature, cinema and politics). I am interested in the representations of the Spanish Civil War and the exile in contemporary literature and film. I am also very interested in queer studies, specifically how sexual diversity is represented in film, TV and Web series. Among my other interests are journalism, travel narratives and the digital humanities.
