Eighteenth-, Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Spanish Literature, Cultural Studies, Literary Theory, Post-colonial Theory
I study eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century Spanish Literature. I have published extensively in modern peninsular Spanish literature as well as cultural studies and postcolonial literature. My books include:
Africans in Europe: The Culture of Exile and Emigration from Equatorial Guinea to Spain (Univ. of Illinois Press, 2010).
Madrid 1900: the Capital as Cradle of Culture (Penn State Press, 1996).
España y su Civilización (McGraw Hill, 1992).
Shifting Ground: Spanish Civil War Exile Literature (Duke Univ. Press 1989).
Trilogy of Treason: an Intertextual Study of Juan Goytisolo (Univ. of Missouri Press 1982).
With Prof. Mbaré Ngom I edited and introduced a collection of essays on the culture of Equatorial Guinea titled Equatorial Guinea and Spanish Letters (2004), a special issue of the Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies.
I have translated into English works by Africans writing in Spanish: the first novel of Equatorial Guinean writer Donato Ndongo, Las tinieblas de tu memoria negra: Shadows of Your Black Memory (Swan Isle Press, 2007).
