I was a profesor asociado at the Universidad de Extremadura (Spain) and an instructor at Milwaukee Area Technical College (Wisconsin). I also taught as a tutor at Marquette University (Wisconsin) and as a teaching assistant at Kalamazoo College (Michigan), where I studied English Literature. In 2001 I was conferred the tenured grade of funcionario docente de carrera by the Spanish Ministry of Education. I earned a doctorate in Anglo-Germanic Studies from Extremadura (1999) with a thesis on Charlotte Temple, the first American best-seller, and a second doctorate, in Spanish literature, from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (2005) with a thesis on the picaresque novel.
I serve in the editorial advisory boards of seven scholarly journals in Denmark, Spain and the US, and have peer-reviewed for journals in Spain, Britain and the US, and for publishers in Britain and the US. In 2003 I won the Universidad de Extremadura Research Prize. I have been a visiting lecturer at the Universities of Aalborg and Copenhagen, and twice an associate researcher at Cambridge.
In 2010-12 I was the Principal Investigator of a Leverhulme International Network, leading a team of fourteen academics from Britain, US, Denmark, Spain, Holland, and Switzerland in a project entitled ‘Unamuno’s Literature and Politics’, sponsored by the Leverhulme Trust’s international-network grants scheme.
