Public engagement

For any Hispanist, public engagement in the Hispanic world itself is of key importance. I regulalry give research seminars in the UK, Spain and other countries in Europe. I have collaborated with Fundación Banco de Santander,, Las sinsombrero project from Ars Intropia, a leading Spanish TV company working with RTVE to produce documentaries on the history of feminist and female artist and writers. I have also been academic advisor and collaborate with the much acclaimed Mujeres bajo sospecha. Memoria y sexualidad 1930-1980, led by Professor Raquel Osborne (UNED),

Here are links to their Facebook pages.,,
