AREAS OF INTEREST
Professor Martin-Márquez's research and teaching center on modern Spanish Peninsular cultural studies and Spanish-language film.  She teaches courses on world cinema.  Her film-related books include Feminist Discourse and Spanish Cinema: Sight Unseen (Oxford UP, 1999), and the collaborative project, Cinema and Everyday Life in 1940s and 1950s Spain: An Oral History (Berghahn Books, forthcoming 2011). 

Other scholarly work focuses on questions of coloniality and identity.  Disorientations: Spanish Colonialism in Africa and the Performance of Identity (Yale UP, 2008) examines the anxious reformulation of centralist and peripheral national identities resulting from Spaniards' post-Enlightenment rediscovery of their "African inheritance," precisely at a time in which "scientific racism" rose to dominance, and the Spanish nation began investing in new colonial regimes in Africa. 

Professor Martin-Márquez's current research focuses on alternative and "third cinema" movements of the 1960s; she has also begun a project on transatlantic and transpacific encounters in Spain's penal colonies in Africa.
