20th Century and Contemporary Irish Literature
I defended my PhD dissertation, entitled “Contemporary Redefinitions of the Irish Family in Colm Tóibín’s Fiction” and supervised by Dr. Teresa Caneda, in December of 2016. My research shows a keen interest in the intersections between gender, sexuality and politics in the Irish context.
Currently, as a Post-Doctoral researcher funded by the Xunta de Galicia, I am working on a project that explores lesbian and gay identities in the fiction of contemporary Ireland under the supervision of Prof. Anne Fogarty at University College Dublin (UCD).
