Research interests

Medieval Literature and Culture French Literature Spanish Literature (Peninsular) Psychoanalysis


I specialize in the medieval literature and culture of Iberia and France and teach French and Spanish language courses as well as courses in European and Latin-American literature and culture. My research is primarily focused on the literature of erotic and spiritual love from the 12th to the 15th century. Other scholarly interests include the philosophical tradition of human subjectivity, psychoanalytic studies, cinema studies and text and image. I am currently working on a book on the influence of Ovid’s myth of Narcissus on writers such as Chrétien de Troyes, Fernando de Rojas, and Alain de Lille.
