Dr. Maria Cinta Ramblado-Minero

Research Interests

My research focuses on discourses of memory, representation and transitional politics in the Hispanic World (with special emphasis on contemporary Spain). My current research project is centred on two main aspects: demarcation and re-inscription of public spaces (sites of memory), and gendered discourses of memory and contestation of traditional war paradigms.

Key areas:

Memory politics and representation in contemporary Spain.
Women's cultural representation and counter-memory dynamics in Spain and Latin America (Southern Cone).

Teaching Interests

SP4003 Socio-Political ISsues in the Contemporary Hispanic World
