My research focuses on twentieth-century Spanish poetry and intellectual history, with particular emphasis on María Zambrano (1904-1991) and the Republican exile under Franco’s dictatorship (1939-1975). I am the author of the book María Zambrano, crítica literaria (2004) and approximately forty publications in collective volumes and journals such as Anales de la Literatura Española Contemporánea, Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies, Bulletin of Spanish Studies, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, España Contemporánea, Hispanic Journal, Letras Peninsulares, Monographic Review / Revista Monográfica, Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, and Revista Hispánica Moderna, among others. In recent years, I received grants from the Fonds québécois de la recherche sur la société et la culture (declined) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. I am currently finishing two books: a monograph on the representation of space in the poetry of the Spanish Republican exile, and the edition of Zambrano’s autobiographical writings, including her unpublished journals (forthcoming as a volume of her Complete Works in Galaxia Gutenberg-Círculo de Lectores). Before joining Concordia University, where I teach literary and cultural studies of modern Spain, I taught Spanish literature at Cairo University (Egypt) and Spanish at Brown University (USA). I am a member of the Advisory Board of Antígona. Revista de la Fundación María Zambrano, and have served as a referee for scholarly journals such as Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos and PMLA. I have also published some creative work and essays on poetry, art, and cinema in magazines, newspapers, and art catalogues.
