Associate Professor of Spanish in the Department of Languages at the University of Alaska Anchorage, US. Throughout her career she has delved into issues pertaining to the relationship between gender and feminism(s) such as ‘Considerations around an Alternative Pornography’, ‘The Deconstruction of Gender and Sex in Sally Potter’s Orlando’, or the book Ensayo sobre la contradicción: Virginia Woolf en Pantalla (Ed University of Alicante). She has also researched, from the framework of Trauma Studies, the possibilities of alternative representations of women’s trauma to avoid pernicious effects such as vicarious traumatization, voyeurism, its aestheticization, or trivialization and the desensitization of the public. Along these lines, she has published several articles, including ‘Mood, Silence and Ghostly Words: Female Trauma in Isabel Coixet’s The Secret Life of Words’ and ‘Songs of Pain. Female Active Survivors in Claudia Llosa’s The Milk of Sorrow’.
