"I am fascinated by narrative and the competing explanations of how it might work. My current research is on the ways film tells stories, in ways both surprisingly similar to and different from the way a novel might. Specifically, I work on the implications of point of view and reliability on theories of narrative across media."

"My recent work focuses above all on the translation of contemporary drama, mostly from German, also from French. My translation of Swiss playwright Lukas Bärfuss' The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents has been produced in London and New York, and in 2011 I received grants from PEN and from the Howard Foundation to translate several more plays by Bärfuss. Early in 2014, Red Tape Theatre in Chicago will premiere my translation of hamlet is dead. no gravity by the Austrian writer Ewald Palmetshofer. Other playwrights whose work I've translated include Rebekka Kricheldorf, whose Rosa and Blanca I directed at Knox in 2008. Meanwhile, I continue to pursue research as a theatre historian, particularly in the area addressed by my 2003 book - the composition and behavior of theatre audiences."

"My specialized area of research is focused on modern and contemporary American art, specifically contextual and theoretical issues associated with the Abstract Expressionist, Neo-Dada and Pop Art movements. I am particularly interested in studying the intersection of these artistic tendencies with forms of mass visual culture, as well as their relation to trends in American philosophical thought."

"My previous research focused on cultural productions that testify gender and class positions of political struggle in times of State crisis, such as anarcho-feminist writings and anarchist film before and during the Spanish Civil War, and political video-activism after the economic crisis in Argentina after December 2001. Most recently I have been working on the concentrationary literature of the Spanish Republicans in French and Nazi camps during their exile after the Spanish Civil War. I frame this study within current memory studies that question the model of the Spanish Democratic Transition as compliant with a politics of forgetting the Spanish Republican past."

"The goal of much recent scholarship on Puerto Rican national identity has been to clarify the ideological underpinnings of nationalist discourses. My aim is to further interrogate nationalism by addressing its silences. The many voices who imagined the nation generally assumed a Creole "brotherhood" as the true forgers of national and cultural identity. In spite of its anti-colonial impulse, Creole cultural nationalism did not welcome women or Afro-Puerto Ricans in the national brotherhood."

"I am interested in the intersections of modernity, story-telling, media and realism. My research focuses on film adaptations from Weimar Germany (1919-1933), paying particular attention to the manner in which these narratives draw attention to the act of story-telling as much as they communicate the story itself. I have recently become increasingly interested in questions constructions of realism in various media, as well as the manner in which cultural critics of the Weimar Republic understood 'realism' with regard to highly mechanical modes of representation such as photography and film. My sources often creatively pass between categories of fiction and documentary as well as mix media and genres. I am also interested in Austrian culture (especially Vienna around 1900), film studies and film history."

"My dissertation and early research combines my love for literature as well as my engagement in feminist theory. My work has focused on issues of the body, specifically the female body. I am particularly intrigued with the way 19th century medical discourse portrays illness as a natural state in women. My work on 19th century Spain has focused on hysteria, anorexia, and menstrual troubles with a focus on how portrayals of sick women work with and against the overall cultural understandings of women's bodies looking toward social causes rather than the biological sources of women's illness. More recently I have turned my attention to Spanish film and contemporary Spanish culture with an emphasis on youth. I am interested in the challenges facing Spanish youth today and their strategies for fighting apathy and finding community. I now teach a new course called Spanish 310 "Spanish Youth through Film, Literature and Music."
