Research interests

My research is clustered in five areas: 1) gender history, the history of sexuality and feminism; 2) oral history and cultural memory; 3) political violence and conflict, revolution and political activism; 4) histories of animal rights and animal welfare; and 5) Spanish and Latin American history and Hispanic studies.

Research projects

I am currently undertaking two research projects: 1) a history of the animal welfare movement in Spain during the transition to democracy; and 2) a study of veganism, feminism and sexual politics. 

I am a member of the editorial Collective of Feminist Review.

Research Supervision

I am currently supervising PhD students on the following topics:

* Women, language and national identity in Catalonia

* Women and post-conflict in the Basque Country

* Social ecology and new materialism

* Governmentality and gay subjectivities in relation to HIV and PrEP

I have supervised PhDs to completion on the following topics:

* Women and work in post-Soviet Cuba

* Ideologies of political violence in Colombia

I am happy to supervise students in any of my research areas.


I have taught and convened MA courses in Historical Research, Gender Studies, Transnational Studies and Cultural Memory.

At undergraduate level I teach modules on Cuba, Latin America and the history of the Americas.
