The Rifkind Center Seminar Room, NAC 6/316

Prof. Estrada is the author of El documental cinematográfico y televisivo contemporáneo: memoria, representación y formación de la identidad democrática española (Tamesis 2013), which examines how a selected group of documentaries made since 1995 for both film and television inform the debate centered on the so-called “recuperation of memory” of the Spanish Civil War and dictatorship.The book contends that these documentaries modify Spanish identity as it was conceived by the teleological historical project of the transition.

Estrada (BA Univeristy of Seville, Spain, MA University of Michigan, PhD Columbia University),  has published articles in the Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies, Studies in Hispanic Cinemas, Hispanic Review, Bulletin of Spanish Studies, España Contemporánea, Catalan Review, and Revista Hispánica Moderna, among other refereed journals. She has contributed to the volumes Approaches to Teaching the Works of Carmen Martín Gaite (2013), Perceptions of the Holocaust in Modern Spanish Culture (2009), and Historias de la pequeña pantalla: Representaciones históricas en la televisión de la España democrática (2008).
