I am a professor of Hispanic Studies at the University of Delhi where I have been teaching since 1990. I have taught Spanish and Latin American literature/history with special emphasis on Mexico. I researched for my Ph.d (on Mexican nationalism in Carlos Fuentes) at the El Colegio de Mexico in 1995 and later at the UNAM in 2004 for a project on the portrayal of the foreigner in Mexican literature. I currently work on the narco novel (Elmer Mendoza) and am enlarging my interest in Central American literature (Horacio Castellanos Moya, Rodrigo Rey Rosa, Josefina Baez).
I also work on Muslims in Golden Age Spanish literature in the works of Cervantes and Lope de Vega.
