Research: 

Given my training in philosophy, I am engaged in issues that pertain both to philosophy and literature in different areas of Hispanism, primarily within Golden Age and Colonial Studies. My actual research focuses on the representation of the Amerindian, Jew, and Muslim in the theater of the Spanish Baroque. I am currently working on a book project on Cervantes’s theater.
