Director of studies, Greek (Modern Greek)

I am a Senior Lecturer of Spanish Studies at the Centre for Languages and Literature at Lund University (SOL).

As a Senior Lecturer, I teach courses in Spanish and Latin American literature and culture (Undergraduate Studies). I am also the responsible of Spanish in the Master Programme in Translation at SOL.

In my dessertation, El personaje femenino de la novela indigenista (2008), I examined the female characters in some of the central Latin American indigenista-novels. In my current investigation, the gender perspective is still present, but the object of study has shifted to female or feminist fantastic fiction.

Apart from being interested in literature, film, and culture from the Spanish speaking world, I am also involved with questions concerning pedagogic and didactic development.

About the research

In my dissertation, El personaje femenino de la novela indigenista (2008), I examined the female characters in some of the central Latin American indigenista novels. In my current investigation, the gender perspective is still present, but the object of study has shifted.

Since 2015, my main focus has been literary transmission. What Spanish and Latin American fiction reaches the Swedish reader? The reverse relation is also subject to my investigation, i. e. the transmission of Swedish literature in the Spanish speaking world. The field of literary transmission comprises studies of institutions such as editorial houses, journals, schools and universities, and of agents such as literary introducers and translators. The field is anchored in sociology of literature, theories of world literature and canon formation being central. I am currently conducting a study on which fictional literature from the Spanish speaking world is being used in Swedish university courses in Spanish, and, simultaneously, I am preparing a project, in cooperation with a colleague from Modern Greek, Marianna Smaragdi, on literary transmission between Sweden, Greece and Spain.

Additionally, I dedicate time to pedagogical and didactic issues, and, at the moment, I am doing an investigation on L1-students’ experiences of studying their mother tongue together with L2-students in our courses in foreign languages.
