About Luisa Briones

Her areas of expertise are 20th- and 21st- century film and media culture, film adaptation, historical memory in Spanish cinema and literature, and gender studies. She uses an interdisciplinary approach to cinema and literature in order to research Iberian identity in fiction during the periods of the Second Republic, dictatorship, and current democracy. Her work focuses on depictions of gender and postmodernist interpretations of Iberian cultural history to investigate the (im)possibilities of producing both an unbiased depiction of gender and a politically-neutral representation of the Spanish Civil War.
