About Heather Jerónimo

In addition to teaching and researching, Dr. Jerónimo is passionate about study abroad, having taken students to Toledo, Spain, for the past two summers. Jerónimo has taught various classes on Spanish grammar, conversation, writing, and literature and is excited to teach a master’s class in the fall of 2014 on the topic of Family and Violence in Contemporary Spanish Narrative and Film. Her current research focuses on representations of family in Spanish literature and film, particularly non-normative parent/child relationships. Jerónimo’s recent publication in Hispanófila explores motherhood, addressing how the subversive mother/daughter relationship in Mercedes Abad’s Sangre undermines political, religious, and societal constraints on the definition of womanhood and motherhood.
