Short description: 

My research focuses on two main 19th-century literature issues: costumbrismo and "artículo de costumbres" (sketch of manners/tableau des moeurs/skizze der sitten). I'm interested in all kind of literary genres in which social customs and manners turned into artistic topic since 18th- to 19th century: moral weeklies or "spectators", sketches, "tableaux", "panoramas", "it-fiction", panoramic literature, literary physiologies, among others.
