Biography

Personal Statement

I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge, and then moved to the University of Leeds where I was Lecturer in Latin American Literature and Culture. I subsequently joined the University of Liverpool in 2004, and am now Gilmour Chair of Spanish. I specialise in modern Latin American literature and culture. I teach across a wide range of modules, and research in particular digital culture and women's writing in Latin America.

I would be interested to hear from potential research students with interests in twentieth and twenty-first century literature from Latin America, with particular focuses on Argentina, Chile, and Colombia; in digital culture in Latin America, particularly net art, hacktivism, and digital ethnography; or those wanting to work on comparative approaches to digital culture studies, studies of memorials and memorialisation, women's writing, or legacies of dictatorship. See further information under the 'Research' tab.
