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 co-editor of the volume VI of María Zambrano’s Obras completas (entitled Escritos autobiográficos. Delirios. Poemas (1928-1990). Delirio y destino (1952)) (2014), and author of the books María Zambrano, crítica literaria (2004) and “Representaciones del espacio en la poesía del exilio republicano español: Emilio Prados, Juan Ramón Jiménez y Luis Cernuda” (manuscript under review in scholarly press; project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada), as well as of scholarly publications in collective volumes and journals such as Anales de la Literatura Española Contemporánea, Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, Bulletin of Spanish Studies, España Contemporánea, Hispanic Journal, Letras Peninsulares, Monographic Review / Revista Monográfica, Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, and Revista Hispánica Moderna, among others. 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 have also published some creative work and essays on poetry, art, and cinema in magazines, newspapers, and art catalogues.
