Professor Susan Larson teaches at Texas Tech University in the Spanish and Portuguese program. She is a specialist in the narrative (prose and film) of Spain since 1898 and her research lies at the intersection of Literary, Film and Urban Studies. She has two distinct but occasionally overlapping areas of specialization: the prose and film of the Spanish avant-garde and the more interdisciplinary field of Hispanic Urban Cultural Studies. She is the Executive Editor of the Romance Quarterly and co-edit the book series “Hispanic Urban Studies” with Benjamin Fraser.
