I am an Associate Professor of Spanish in the department of Romance Languages and Literatures at the University of Cincinnati. My fields of interest are modern Spanish drama and narrative, world literature, and literary theory.

This Fall 2018 I am Interim Director of the Taft Research Center at the University of Cincinnati.

I am the author of Drama, literatura, filosofía: Itinerarios del realismo y el modernismo europeos (Fundamentos: Madrid, 2015). Four academic journals have reviewed my book (AnagnórisisTropelíasJournal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics452F).  My critical anthology of texts Despistemes: la teoría literaria y cultural de Emil Volek (antología de textos) will be published by Verbum in late 2018. I am currently working on a monograph on Federico García Lorca’s theater, under contract with Routledge.
