Elizabeth Lagresa-González, Assistant Professor (Spanish), French, Hispanic and Italian

Elizabeth Lagresa-González obtained her Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures from Harvard University. Her area of specialization is early modern Hispanic literature and culture, which she addresses at the intersection of gender, visual and material studies. In addition to peer-reviewed articles published on the subject of masculine women and representations of power in the comedia, she has co-authored a book chapter on collaborative approaches to the Digital Humanities, as well as a critical edition and English translation of Bernat Metge’s Lo Somni / The Dream. Dr. Lagresa-González has taught at UCSB, Harvard and Penn State, and has been a Research Fellow at Harvard’s Center for Renaissance Study, the Villa Itatti (Florence), as well as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Free University in Berlin. Her forthcoming monograph, tentatively titled, The Business of Romance: Reappraising Cross-Cultural Transactions in Early Modern Spanish Novellas, builds on her interest in the transculturation of objects and subjects across national and disciplinary borders.
