My main fields of interest are American literature and its pedagogical potential for the teaching of EFL. I have published articles in Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses, Revista de Estudios Norteamericanos, Academic ExchangeQuarterly, Culture, Language and Representation, Atlantis, Journal of the Spanish Association of Anglo-American Studies, and English Teaching-Practice and Critique among other journals. Books published include La verdadera historia del cautiverio y la restitución de Mary Rowlandson. Traducción, estudio crítico y notas (A True History of the Captivity and Restoration of Mary Rowlandson). Translation, Critical Study and Notes) (2008); Truman Capote, un camaleón ante el espejo (Truman Capote, a Chamaleon at the Mirror) (2009) and Prisioneras de salvajes. Relatos y confesiones de mujeres cautivas de indios norteamericanos (Prisoners of Savages. Stories and Confessions of Captive Women of American Indians) (2012). I am currently working on the critical evaluation of contemporary retellings of fairy tales by British and North-American writers and on its practical applications to the EFL classroom.

This volume presents a selection of texts written by relevant white (Crevecoeur, Franklin, Jefferson) and black (Wheatley, Equiano) authors during the final years of the eighteenth- century. Their writings represent the spirit of the Enlightenment and explore the meaning and central role of what it was to be an American at the Revolution and early Republic eras.
