    Border, Space and the Body in the Films Biutiful and Victoria2022In: Representing 21st-century Migration In Europe: Performing Borders, Identities and Texts / [ed] Nelson González Ortega and Ana Belén Martínez García, New York, Oxford: Berghahn Books, 2022Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter examines the role of space and the body as carriers of metaphorical meanings related to the notions of the border and migration in the films Biutiful and Victoria. In it, special attention is paid to the way these films use subterranean space to highlight understandings of subversion and exclusion. Limbo, on the other hand, is associated to transition and waiting, key elements of the migrant experience. Visibility/invisibility and speech/silence are also recurring in the metaphorical processes attached to corporality, underground and limbo in these films.

    Discussion Forums in Literature and Film2021In: Designing Courses with Digital Technologies: Insights and Examples from Higher Education / [ed] Stefan Hrastinski, New York and London: Routledge, 2021Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter looks at the use of online discussion forums in a course that unites the study of film, literature and history. The aim is to discuss how asynchronous forums can be designed in such a way that they encourage students' dialogue and promote their analytical skills while at the same time remaining respectful spaces. Key issues discussed here are group size, the role of the teacher, cyberincivility, session length and instructions. This chapter argues that the number of participants and session length have to be carefully considered in order to avoid groups that are too large or forums that are open for too long, because both are seen to decrease student interaction. Other considerations are the inhibiting effect that active teacher participation tends to have in the forum and the role of instructions given to students to avoid cyberincivility.

    El teatro de García Lorca y la transfiguración del personaje masculino2018In: Teatro: Revista de Estudios Culturales, ISSN 2174-579X, Vol. 32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [es]

    Los personajes masculinos de las obras de Lorca tienen un papel vital en el fracaso del deseo. Nos encontramos a menudo con personajes masculinos ausentes o prohibidos para sus amantes femeninas. En este artículo queremos relacionar los mecanismos del deseo lorquiano con la visión de Girard del deseo como algo predestinado al fracaso. Con la ayuda de la noción de transfiguración veremos cómo las protagonistas del teatro de Lorca crean figuras masculinas idealizadas y cómo esta idealización tiene una serie de efectos en la obra: desde la debilitación de otros personajes masculinos, hasta la expresión de la intensidad del deseo femenino.

    En busca del espacio perdido; la crisis y el espacio urbano en La habitación oscura y Animales domésticos2019In: Revista de literatura (Madrid), ISSN 0034-849X, E-ISSN 1988-4192, Vol. 81, no 162, p. 549-572Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The novels written about Spain’s financial crisis of recent years  have in common the representation of an urban space that serves as much more than simply a background. In this article, we want to examine two novels,  La habitación oscura by Isaac Rosa and Animales domésticos by Marta Sanz, which portray the crisis and pre-crisis respectively from the perspective of the space of the city. Social and economic disintegration mirrors itself in the space of the city or, if we reverse this thought: the space of the city serves as a mirror for the decomposition that is found within the novels. We will thus highlight and delve into three phenomena: the representation of the city as a betrayed arcadia, the collapse of certain spaces and the exclusion that this conveys, and, finally, the city’s underground sphere and its relation to death.

    Madrid capital de: sobre la literatura de la crisis y el espacio de la gran ciudad2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [es]

    El objetivo de este estudio será llamar la atención sobre el papel del espacio, y más particularmente, el espacio de la gran ciudad, en la literatura de la crisis. En los últimos años se ha visto el nacimiento de una creciente creación artística (cine, literatura, teatro, etc.) que explora diferentes aspectos relacionados con el clima social que ha acompañado la crisis económica. En el ámbito de la literatura, Madrid, aparece repetidamente como el espacio en que se mueve la acción de estos textos. Haremos un análisis de varios textos, examinando la relación entre los diferentes aspectos que se retratan de una sociedad en crisis (desempleo, pobreza, desintegración familiar, locura, etc.) y el espacio de la ciudad. Indagaremos en las diferentes funciones que la ciudad tiene en la narración a la vez que mostramos la función de estos textos como testimonio de una realidad.

    Migración, espacio y exclusión en 2020 de Javier Moreno2019In: Bergen Language and Lingustics Studies, ISSN 1892-2449, E-ISSN 1892-2449, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 1-9Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A number of novels about the financial crisis and its consequences have been written in Spain in recent years. In most, migrants are represented in a secondary role, often as short allusions or as mere ornaments. This article aims to highlight one novel, 2020 by Javier Moreno, that breaks that pattern since it features migrant characters in key roles. The article further aims to analyse the relationship between space and the representation of the migrant in the context of a society in crisis. The notions of non-place by Marc Augé and heterotopia by Michel Foucault will serve as the theoretical framework that will allow for an exploration of phenomena such as the inversion of non-places into places, the connection of crisis and deviation, the role of certain spaces as both shelters and containers of the unwanted, the role of gaze in the construction of an exclusion, and the circular movement of powerless characters in time and space throughout the novel.

    Migración, espacio y exclusión en 2020 de Javier Moreno2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [es]

    En la novela 2020 de Javier Moreno se puede observar una visión futurística y distópica de Madrid. El objetivo de mi ponencia será resaltar la centralidad de la figura del inmigrante en esta novela y analizar la relación entre el espacio, la representación de la exclusión y el nacimiento de un activismo alternativo en el contexto de una sociedad en crisis. Algunos de los personajes clave de la novela se encuentran voluntaria o involuntariamente despojados de los espacios asociados a la vida moderna (casa, lugar de trabajo) y de esta falta surge un desplazamiento hacia una serie de espacios transitorios. En mi ponencia analizaré algunos fenómenos asociados a este desplazamiento, como la configuración de formas atípicas de subversión o el papel transgresor del vacío y el silencio.

    Migrants and Other Others in 2020 by Javier Moreno2021In: Narratives Crossing Borders: The Dynamics of Cultural Interaction / [ed] Herbert Jonsson, Lovisa Berg, Chatarina Edfeldt & Bo G. Jansson, Stockholm: Stockholm University Press, 2021, p. 52-74Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this chapter is to study the representation of different borders and its role in the portrayal of otherness in 2020 by Javier Moreno. 2020 is a novel built on the thoughts and voices of a series of characters. Amongst these, we can find Nabil, a young man of Saharawi origin; Jorge, a homeless man with Asperger’s; Josefina, a rich young anorexic woman; and her father, Gowan, a successful businessman of Scottish origin, who has disappeared and is involved in the creation of a mystic revolutionary movement. We explore the ways in which the novel builds a dystopic society through the representation of dysfunctional characters embodying different kinds of otherness and the way in which spatiality and the body are key to understanding how this otherness is created and reinforced.

    With the help of the notions of limbo, non-places, hybridity, simulacrum and the dichotomy center-periphery we examine how borders are raised in the novel and how these affect the characters and the depiction of a society in decline. The notions of void and ruins recur as topics in the novel, and are an obsession for Gowan, who is both an observer and a creator of ruins through a series of actions that represent a wider economic reality where objects are bought, sold and trashed. 

    We study how the body, which in a way is the first barrier between the characters and the outside, plays a significant role in the novel as a marker of ethnicity, physical illness or, as with Josefina, as the recipient and target of an obsession for corporal void, latent in her eating disorder. Decay, in terms of both the character’s bodies and the spaces around them, functions in 2020 as a metaphor of a dysfunctional socio-economic system that is collapsing.
