Sarah Thomas joined Brown's faculty in 2013, after receiving her Ph.D. from New York University's Department of Spanish and Portuguese. She works on contemporary fiction and film from Spain, with a secondary interest in Latin American cinema. Her research is especially concerned with cultural production emerging from (post)-dictatorship societies in the Spanish-speaking world and the representation of subjectivity, temporality, and space. Other interests include translation studies, gender and sexuality studies, and literary and film theory. She has published on cinema and literature from Spain, Peru, and Argentina, and her first book, Inhabiting the In-Between: Childhood and Cinema in Spain's Long Transition, was published in 2019 by the University of Toronto Press in its Iberic series. She is currently working on a second book manuscript, The Cinema of Carlos Saura: Breaking Boundaries, which is under contract in the Directors' Cuts series at Columbia University's Wallflower Press imprint.
