Nuria Cruz-Cámara

Nuria Cruz-Cámara is an associate professor in the Department of Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures who specializes in 20th-century Spanish literature and culture, an area on which she has published extensively in top professional journals, such as Letras Femeninas, Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, Bulletin of Spanish Studies, Symposium, Crítica Hispánica, and Revista Hispánica Moderna. Her monograph entitled El laberinto intertextual de Carmen Martín Gaite is the only one to date that deals with the key topic of intertextuality in the work of the internationally renowned Spanish writer Carmen Martín Gaite. Currently, Professor Cruz-Cámara is working on a book manuscript concerning the depiction of the modern woman in Federica Montseny’s essays and novels. Montseny was one of the most important leaders of Spanish anarchism during the 1920s and 1930s. This study will be the first one to examine this topic comprehensively, and will undoubtedly make a valuable contribution to the field of women’s studies in 20th-century Spain.
