AREAS OF INTEREST
Professor Otero-Torres specializes in Spanish Golden Age literature; cultural and gender studies theory.

Otero-Torres has published numerous articles on the construction of gendered subjectivities and national identities in the Spanish comedia. Her book Vientre, manos y espíritu: hacia la construcción del sujeto femenino en el Siglo de Oro (Xalapa, Universidad Veracruzana, 2000) maps out reading strategies to deal with the notion of female subjectivities in early modern Spanish culture.

She is currently working on a book manuscript dealing with issues of authority, authorship and power in Golden Age women writers, primarily on the work of sixteenth-century Spanish philosopher Oliva Sabuco de Nantes.
