Research Interests
My research interests are probably too varied for my own good, and in the past have included pedagogy, ecofeminism, gay and lesbian authors, film, the literature of the Spanish civil war, feminist criticism, travel writing and deconstruction. I am currently working on two projects simultaneously: one on Latina lesbian authors, filmmakers and artists, and another on Hispanic nature writing.
