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) environmental history and the history of human-animal relations; and 5) Spanish and Latin American history and Hispanic studies.
My new research examines issues of historical subjectivity in relation to animal rights and animal welfare activism in Europe and Latin America in the late twentieth century and early twenty-first centuries.
I am a member of the editorial Collective of Feminist Review.
I am currently supervising PhD students on the following topics:
* Women and work in post-Soviet Cuba
* Ideologies of political violence in Colombia
* Twentieth-century Spanish documentary photography
* Women, language and national identity in Catalonia
* Women armed activists in Peru
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.
