Personal profile

My research field is Peninsular Spanish literature from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. I have been working on the Gothic mode in particular in recent years, pioneering work in this area in Hispanic Studies. This has produced two monographs and several articles. A new book on Spanish vampire fiction under contract to Routledge, is close to completion. I am also interested in gender studies, which inflects my approach to the Gothic, but also stretches beyond it: I am on the Steering Committee of the Centre for Contemporary Women's Writing, under the auspices of the Institute for Modern Languages Research of the University of London and, in that capacity, was part of the team that managed an AHRC-funded research network exploring interdisciplinary approaches to motherhood in Europe since 1968.
