My scholarship explores the legacy of the classical tradition throughout the early modern Hispanic world, focusing in particular on how ancient Greek was studied—and how its study was portrayed—among Spanish-speaking humanists from Juan de Mena to Francisco de Quevedo . My teaching of the Spanish language, its literatures, and its cultures emphasizes the richness and diversity of the Hispanic world, both past and present.
