    Currículum breve:

    My career as a researcher was initiated in the late 1990s with several publications and papers in conferences related to the topic of my PhD thesis, which focused on the literary rewriting of female Christian myths by British author Michèle Roberts (Sobresaliente Cum Laude, Premio Extraordinario). Among these publications I can highlight Santas improbables: Re/visiones de mitología Cristiana en autoras contemporáneas (KRK, 1999) and my interview with Roberts published in Atlantis (2003). Both publications had great impact, the latter being my highest-impact publication to date (18 documented quotes; source: Google Scholar).

    The beginning of my postdoctoral period was parallel to my teaching position at the University of the Balearic Islands (Prof. Titular de Universidad Interina 2002-2009). My research has focused since then on diasporic writing by women with attention to the representation of gendered identities, a new line of research I combined with publications related to my previous research, such as Santa o hereje: La otra Teresa de Ávila en Impossible Saints de Michèle Roberts (Edicions UIB, 2006), which was the first international monograph on Roberts and, therefore, had great impact; or my article in the indexed journal Feminist Theology (2006), quoted in specialized books in leading publishing houses (Palgrave MacMillan 2015, Bloomsbury 2013).

    I must add several publications in journals such as Philologia (2008), The Bulletin of the Transylvania University of Brasov (2008), Op. Cit. (2009) or Oceánide (2012). The majority of them focused on gender, race and identity issues in novels by Zadie Smith, Helen Oyeyemi, Meera Syal, Andrea Levy or Diana Evans. In this period I also co-edited several books: Nación, diversidad y género. Perspectivas críticas (Anthropos, 2010), On Cultural Diversity (UIB, 2009) and De-Centring Cultural Studies (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2013). The last one was the result of a selection of papers given at the 4th International SELICUP Conference, which I co-organised in Palma in 2010, after previous experiences in the organisation of conferences (AEDEAN 2008, AUDEM 2005).

    After obtaining my first research period (sexenio de investigación, 1999-2008), my research has been linked to two projects directed by Prof. Isabel Carrera Suárez (2011-13, 2014-17), both focused on the representation of the contemporary transcultural city and the interaction of its inhabitants with attention to gender, race and migration. As a result, I can mention papers in the high-impact journals Journal of Commonwealth Literature (2014) and European Journal of English Studies (2017), on authors Chika Unigwe and Aminatta Forna, as well as in SKASE Journal of Literary Studies (2011), where my article on Monica Ali's In the Kitchen has been quoted 6 times to date (source: Google Scholar).

    In recent years I have obtained my second research period (2009-2014) and participated in different seminars and conferences with papers related to the projects in which I have participated (Tarragona 2012, Palma de Mallorca 2013, Oviedo 2016, EACLALS 2017, Liege 2018). The second of the abovementioned seminars was organized by me at the UIB. I have also co-organised the 14th International Robert Graves Conference in Palma de Mallorca (July 2018) in connection with my recent co-edition of the book Diccionario de autores anglófonos en Baleares (Olañeta, 2015) and I am presently co-organising the 8th International SELICUP Conference (October 2018, Alcudia, Majorca).
