Selected Works & Activities

  • Book: Tiempos de ausencias y vacíos: escrituras de memoria e identidad. Under Contract. Deusto University Press-Publicaciones de la Universidad de Deusto (Bilbao, Spain). Fall 2010. A study of the interrelations between memory and identity in the Spain of the Transition and post-Transition historical period. The need for a more accurate account of the past, one that is inclusive and questions official and congratulatory historical renderings, also calls for a Spanish identity freed from Francoist notions. Memory and identity come together to redefine Spanishness as an open and participatory project where every voice coming from the past will find its proper place. The study addresses literary, filmic, and pictorial texts.

  • Book: La tarea política: narrativa y ética en la España posmoderna. Barcelona: Montesinos-El Viejo Topo, 2004. A rethinking of postmodern subjectivities and their ethical positionings in literary texts by Juan Goytisolo, Rosa Montero, Manuel Vázquez Montalbán y Jorge Semprún. Within the literary field, these authors rethink and reformulate the relations between postmodernity and modernity, civil society and its citizenry, historical memory versus memory in narration, and literary and sexual identities versus heterogeinity.
