About me

I have published widely on contemporary Spanish cinema, with an emphasis on landscape, genre, on Basque cinema and on gender and sexualities. I am the author of monographs on Spanish Gothic (Edinburgh University Press 2016), Penélope Cruz (Palgrave Macmillan 2014), Spanish landscape, space and place (Liverpool University Press 2012); on the Basque director Daniel Calparsoro (Manchester University Press, 2009) and the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar (Grant & Cutler, 2007); and on gender relations in Don Juan plays (Edwin Mellen 2004). I am co-author of a monograph on Carmen on film (with Phil Powrie, Bruce Babington and Chris Perriam; Indiana University Press 2007). I have edited a volume on contemporary Spanish cinema (Palgrave Macmillan 2011), and co-edited volumes on Carmen on film (with Chris Perriam; Rodopi 2006) and masculinities in Hollywood and European cinema (with Phil Powrie and Bruce Babington; Wallflower Press 2004).
