Dr Lara Anderson

Dr Lara Anderson has published extensively on Spanish literature and culinary texts from the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Dr Anderson’s main research focus is Spanish culinary culture, from the role of gastronomy in Spain’s fin-de-siecle identity formation, to Spanish cookery television shows as a site for gender critique. Her books include Cooking up the Nation: Spanish Culinary Texts and Culinary Nationalisation in the Late Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries. Dr Anderson has recently embarked on a new project looking at historical memory and culinary nostalgia. This builds on her interest in cookery books written during the Spanish civil war, as well as her research into contemporary Spanish gastro-tourism and the ways culinary culture is used to project and construct national identity.
