About martafsuarez

I am a current PhD Student at the Liverpool John Moores University. I finished her BA (Hons) degree in Spanish Philology in Spain (2004, Licenciatura, UNED), where I also did my PGCE training in Literature and Language (2005, University of Valencia). I obtained a MA in Latin American Cultural Studies at the University of Manchester (2010) with a research on Chicano cultural symbols and self-representation online. My current research looks at the portrayal of immigration in Spanish film. Professionally, I teach film and screenwriting at the LJMU through a GTA scholarship. In 2008 I won the Creative Writing Award "Ana Maria Matute", an annual international award organized by Torremozas, who published the piece later that same year.
