Dr Deborah Martin
Dept Spanish and Latin American Studies
Gower St
  • Senior Lecturer
  • Faculty of Arts & Humanities

I joined the Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies, UCL, in September 2012, having previously lectured at the University of Bath (2008-2012), as well as at Anglia Ruskin University, London Metropolitan University and the University of Cambridge, where I gained my doctorate, on 'Gender, Politics and Aesthetics in Colombian Women's Cultural Production' in 2008.

Research Summary

I lecture on the cinema, literature and culture of Latin America, and my research focuses on Latin American cultural production with a particular emphasis on cinema. I draw on a broad range of methodologies, including film theory, gender and sexuality studies, and childhood studies. I have a particular interest in theories of embodiment and touch in cinema.

In 2016 I published The Cinema of Lucrecia Martel, a detailed study of the films of the Argentine director, and in 2017, together with Deborah Shaw (Portsmouth University), I published a co-edited volume of essays, Latin American Women Filmmakers: Production, Politics, Poetics. I am currently writing about representations of childhood in contemporary Latin American film.

Teaching Summary

I contribute lectures on film and on literature to the first year core course SPAN1500, as well as delivering a second year module (SPAN2121: Introduction to Latin American Cinema), and a final year module (SPAN4411: Childhood in Latin American Cinema). At MA level I offer a module on New Argentine Cinemas (SPANGF02) and contribute to the Gender, Society and Representation MA core course.
