Short biography: 

Xiana Sotelo is a Professor of English at Francisco de Victoria University of Madrid. She holds a PhD in Literary and Cultural Studies Program at the English Department at the Complutense University of Madrid and has finished a Master in Women Studies. After a research period at UC Berkeley she began focusing on the impact on both cultural studies and feminist theory of the first women of color anthology in the US, This Bridge Called my Back: Radical Writing by Women of Color until its latest edition 2001 This Bridge We Call Home: Radical Writings for Transformation.

In her P.H.D dissertation, she traces the conflicting logic of difference and equality in the evolution of differences among women within the Anglo-American feminist critical consciousness in its journey towards “Intersectionality”. She has attended and presented at several congresses on topics related to feminist theory and research, the exploration of “intersectionality” as a theory/method and post-secular feminist identities.

Currently, she is working on the conjunction between comparative literary studies and cultural feminist studies of technoscience exploring how the new media is helping to negotiate gender identities and to destabilize social hierarchies (the deconstruction of “race” as a cultural category) in a globalized society.
