Dr. Eva Paris-Huesca

Dr. Eva Paris-Huesca was awarded a Travel Learning grant to take students enrolled in her Spring ‘17 Spanish Crime Fiction class to Spain. Students will have the opportunity to travel to Barcelona and the Basque-Navarro region. They will have a first-hand experience of some of the most emblematic sites and spaces narrated and portrayed in 20th and 21st Century Spanish crime fiction, while using their Spanish language skills in a real environment. Last semester, she organized a lecture on contemporary Spanish theatre and invited artists Ellen Kaplan and Estela Harretche (Smith College) to perform in a Spanish/English theatrical production based on David Desola´s play The Dictator´s Granddaughter. Dr. Paris-Huesca has recently published two book chapters, titled “Intersección de miradas femeninas y voces andaluzas en el cine de Pilar Távora”, and “(Re)apropiación de la novela detectivesca: la violencia de(l) género en Las niñas perdidas de Cristina Fallarás”, and two peer-reviewed journal articles, titled “En busca de un pasado perdido: Sé quién eres y los nuevos discursos de la memoria”, and “Pilar Miró y el revival del noir en los noventa: Beltenebros y la femme fatale en proceso de de(con)strucción”. She is also a member of the 2014-2017 Spanish research grant project “Víctimas y agresoras. Representaciones de la violencia en la narrativa criminal escrita por mujeres” awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitivity.
