I am an Associate Professor of Spanish at Oklahoma State University, where I teach and research on 20th and 21st Century Iberian Studies. My work discusses novels and autobiographies written in inner and territorial exile after the Spanish Civil War, conceiving exile as a phenomenon of cultural, and not only physical, displacement. I have published articles on exile authors in journals such as Bulletin of Hispanic Studies and Catalan Review. I am currently on sabbatical in Spain completing a book manuscript that examines narrative resistance from exile during Francoism. I have also written on postmemory and contemporary film. My second research project studies formulations of the future in 21st century Iberian fiction.
I have a Licenciatura in Hispanic Philology from the University of Oviedo, Spain, and a PhD in Hispanic Cultural Studies from Michigan State University (directed by José Colmeiro). I worked as a Spanish Lecturer at the Univerzitet Džemal Bijedić in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and as an Assistant Professor of Spanish at Central Michigan University.
