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.
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.
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.
