Stephanie Sieburth received her PhD from Princeton University in 1984, and taught at Brandeis University before coming to Duke in 1987. Her main area of specialization is Spanish literature and culture from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. Her publications include Inventing High and Low: Literature, Mass Culture and Uneven Modernity in Spain (Duke University Press, 1994), Reading "La Regenta": Duplicitous Discourse and the Entropy of Structure, (Purdue University Monographs in Romance Languages, 1990), and articles on Galdós, Clarín, Goytisolo, Martín Gaite and García Márquez. Her research interests include nineteenth-century literature and culture in Spain, relations between "highbrow" literature and mass culture in Spain and Latin America, Modernity and the City, the Spanish Civil War, and gender studies.
