Professor and researcher on Spanish literature and film N. Michelle Murray will discuss race, gender and the representation of migrant women in Spanish film in a virtual talk hosted by Dickinson College’s Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues.

Murray is an assistant professor of Spanish at Vanderbilt University. Her research and teaching focus on contemporary Spanish literature and film. Her first book, “Home Away from Home: Immigrant Narratives, Domesticity, and Coloniality in Contemporary Spanish Culture,” studies representations of immigrant women as domestic workers in present-day Spain. Murray is currently working on a book entitled “Migrant Markets” which explores migration, political economy and trafficking in the Southern Mediterranean.
