Current Research

My main project at present is a monograph entitled Subversive Spanish Cinema: The Politics of Performance. The book is under contract with I. B. Tauris and I am due to submit the manuscript in Autumn 2018. You can find the book proposal for this project here.

I am really excited about this monograph and I am really enjoying pulling it all together (despite feeling a little under pressure with regard to time!). It is an extension of work on the representation of performance in post-Franco Spanish cinema which I completed as part of my doctoral research but it involves a significant reworking and expansion of that material. Some of my favourite, and arguably some of the best, Spanish films feature as case studies, including Blancanieves (Berger, 2012), Los amantes pasajeros [I’m So Excited!] (Almodovar, 2013), Todo lo que tu quieras [Anything You Want] (Mañas, 2010), Tambien la lluvia [Even the Rain] (Bollain, 2010) and Noviembre [November] (Mañas, 2003).
