I am a post-doctoral researcher and teaching assistant at Ghent University (Belgium). My research project funded by the BOF examines a group of Spanish women poets who participated in the avant-garde movement in the 1920s and 1930s. The goal of the project is to rethink the generational approach to Spanish vanguard poetry, place Spanish women poets in dialogue with their foreign counterparts and examine their involvement in the Brussels-based avant-garde circles La Lanterne Sourde and Amitiés hispano-belgo-américaines. By looking at poetry collections, literary circles and avant-garde magazines, this project questions Spain’s exclusion from studies of the international avant-garde and views Spanish women poets as mediators across cultural and geographical borders.
In the past years, I have been a guest professor in comparative French literature at Paris-Diderot and a regular teacher of Spanish and English literature at Ghent University. I have also co-directed a project on comparative translation studies at Sorbonne University and I have organized international conferences in Paris, Washington DC, and Pittsburgh. My articles published in three languages (English, Spanish and French) have focused on Spanish and comparative poetry, literary translation, nineteenth-century salon culture and women’s periodicals in Southern Europe. I have also been a reviewer for the academic journals Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, Revista de Escritoras Ibéricas and Revista de Estudios de Género y Sexualidades.
