PhD candidate in English Studies @ Universidad de Valladolid.
BA in English Studies at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, MA cum laude in Literary Studies at Leiden University. I’m working within the research project A Critical History of Ethnic American Literature: An Intercultural Approach and the European project HOSTFILM: Hospitality in European Cinema. My research is centered on the aesthetics of the cultural productions of non-hegemonic groups, especially Caribbean writers in a transnational context. Exploring these aesthetics I’ve published articles dealing with the poetry of Derek Walcott and the prose of Junot Díaz. I’ve also participated and organized many international multidisciplinary conferences and cinema seminars within academic and non-academic circles.
