Nuria Cruz Camara, Professor and Chair for the Hispanic Studies Program at the University of Tennessee, specializes in 20th-century Spanish women’s studies. She received her Licenciatura (bachelor’s degree) in English Philology from the University of Salamanca (Spain) and her Ph.D. in Spanish Literature from the State University of New York at Buffalo before joining UT’s faculty in 1999. Her work details women writers involved in politics during the first decades of the twentieth century and literacy revolved around Spanish culture. Her many publications include La mujer moderna en los escritos de Federica Montseny and El laberinto intertextual de Carmen Martín Gaite: Un estudio de sus novelas de los noventa.

Nuria is currently working on a research project that involves the study of how feminism was portrayed in the early 20th- century Spanish illustrated magazines.
