Research Description

Most of my research focuses on gender, sexuality, and discourse in Spain since the mid- 19th century, with a focus on narrative and on the turn of the century (19th to 20th), as well as on translation studies. 

Currently, I am researching and analyzing the roles played by gender and race in the cultural discourses on the Spanish Empire at the fin de siglo, with a special emphasis on the Philippines. My book in progress on this subject is tentatively titled Family Troubles: Spain and the Philippines in the Late Modern Empire.
