I earned my PhD from Stanford University in Iberian And Latin American Cultures in 2012. My dissertation, entitled Open Wounds: Literature, Memory, and Space in Rural Iberia, is a cross-cultural, interdisciplinary study of readership of four contemporary novels about the Spanish Civil War in the rural communities they depict. Along with studying modern narrative and film in an Iberian framework, I also research visual and popular culture, technology and the humanities, and the intersections of anthropology and the arts. In my free time I enjoy running and spending time with my wife Betty and our four children. I have been a member of the Department of Foreign Languages and Philosophy at Southern Utah University since 2013.
