Jennifer Brady teaches courses in Spanish language and in cinema, culture, and literature from contemporary Spain. She also serves as the Managing Editor of Hispania, the scholarly journal of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP) (check out the centenary issue of the journal at www.hispaniajournal.com). Her research is focused on repetition, neurosis, gender, and illness as related to identity and agency in contemporary filmic and literary works. Even though her main area of research is twentieth- and twenty-first-century literature and film from Spain, she has published on other topics as well, including studies on Early Modern, seventeenth-century, and nineteenth-century literary works from Spain.
