Personal Statement

I have a PhD from the University of Cambridge whereI also completed an MPhil and BA. I have worked as a lecturer in Hispanic Studies at the Universities of Manchester and Hull and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I have published widely on Spanish and Catalan cinema and television with a focus on memory, national identity, gender and feminism. My monograph 'Cinema at the Edges: New Readings of Julio Medem, Bigas Luna and Jose Luis Guerin' is published by Berghahn Books. I am currently working on a co-authored monograph, with Prof. Anja Louis, Sheffield Hallam, on Feminism and Femininities in Spanish TV Drama (under contract with Palgrave MacMillan) and co-editing a volume on Gender and TV in Iberia and Latin America (under contract with Bloomsbury). I am working on a larger project on mediating feminism in contemporary Spanish popular culture.

I would welcome PhD applications working on gender, popular culture, Spanish film and television, transnational film and television, gender violence on screen, celebrity and stardom.
