20th and 21st Century Spanish Cultural Production

Lindsey Reuben's interests lie in modern and contemporary Spanish cultural production that span a breadth of critical points of reflection intersecting in urban studies, gender studies, and political theory. Her current book project preliminarily titled Unraveling Domesticity: Economies of the Home in Modern Spanish Literature focuses on roles of the home space throughout the uneven processes of Spanish modernization by questioning the public and private divide under which the home has traditionally been understood. Her recent book chapters and publications include "The City Unmapped: A Feminist Imagination of Urban Spaces in Javier Pérez Andújar's Paseos Con Mi Madre" (Gender in Spanish Urban Spaces, Ed. DiFrancesco & Ochoa, Palgrave Macmillan, 2017), "The Violence of "Inclusive Exclusion" in Fernando León de Aranoa's Amador" (Bulletin of Spanish Studies, forthcoming) and "Aporias of manhood: Revisiting Nada beyond the feminine" (forthcoming).  

Lindsey is thrilled to be part of the already vibrant Modern Languages and Literatures department. Prior to her Lehigh appointment, Lindsey completed her M.A. at Columbia University in 2011 and her Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania in 2017. She has taught a wide-range of Spanish culture, literature and languages classes at UPenn and at Shippensburg University.
