Dr. Tina Escaja

Dr. Escaja’s research includes investigations on women and representation in the turn of the nineteenth century and its connections with the current turn of the millennium. Her latest academic work explores new avenues for the construction of a literary canon in contemporary Spain. She also investigates on gender and technology in relation with works written by Latin American and Spanish women writers, theorizing over the implications of a genuine expression of women in cyberspace. Escaja is also a creative writer that has explored the electronic possibilities of connection provided by interactive multimedia and hypertext.
