I am a social and cultural historian of 18th, 19th, & 20th century Europe, with a growing interest in intellectual history. My research interests center on public discourse in southern Europe, particularly in newspapers, magazines, and popular novels, during the 'fin de siglo' period, from about 1870-1930. I also explore the impact of popular discourse on the politics, social, cultural, and intellectual issues of turn-of-the-century Spain. My current research includes popular and medical discourse on sexuality and gender as it relates to personal and national identity formation.
