Ana Fernández Cebrián

Assistant Professor

Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures

Ana Fernández-Cebrián earned her B.A. in Hispanic Philology from Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain, and Ph.D in Spanish and Portuguese from Princeton University. Her research focuses on the important historical shifts pertaining ideological production and the transformations of the public sphere from the Second Republic to late Francoist Spain, with a special emphasis on literature, cultural studies, film, and media. She has published articles on Ramón Gómez de la Serna and the international avant-garde, the literary field in the Primo de Rivera dictatorship, Cold War studies, and popular cultures and consumer society in the Spanish cinema of the fifties. Her current projects center on different narratives of development in cultural fictions and collective social life within the context of the turn from postwar autarchy to the so-called “Spanish economic miracle”. Other research and teaching interests include the impact of the accounts of progress, modernity and scarcity on the expectations of a social majority in the current economic crisis.
