Shelley Godsland, whose appointment as professor of Spanish and Latin American Literature was made known last week, researches late 20th- and early 21st-century Peninsular and Latin American fiction with a broadly cultural studies approach.
Dr. Godsland’s work on women’s detective literature and her pioneering promotion of academic engagement with Hispanic popular culture have earned her international reputation. Participations in conferences, and over fifty (peer-revied) book (chapters) and journal articles represent only a portion of her vast contribution to Spanish literature studies.
Among the books (co-)authored by dr. Godsland, the following have now been ordered for the UvA-library collections at P.C. Hoofthuis:
Cultura popular: studies in Spanish and Latin American popular culture (Peter Lang, 2002).
Killing Carmens: women’s crime fiction from Spain (University of Wales press, 2007)
Reading the popular in contemporary Spanish texts (University of Delaware press, 2004)
Writing reflection, reflecting on writing female identity and Lacan’s mirror in Helena Parente Cunha and Sylvia Molloy (Universitas Castellae Valladolid, 2006).
