My research engages questions of meaning in finisecular peninsular texts, especially the poetry of Juan Ramón Jiménez (early period) and the work of Miguel de Unamuno. New areas of interest include the image of Spain in the US throughout its history, as well as the representation of historical memory in Spain.
