Inés Arribas taught at Bryn Mawr in 1997-1998 and rejoined the department in fall 2001. Her field of research embraces several facets of Spanish Cultural Studies. She is the author of La literatura de humor en la España democrática (1997) and of several articles about humoristic literature - an important popular genre for understanding the socio-political context of post-Franco Spain. Her more recent research encompasses cultural representations of Spanish gypsies in Spanish literature (18th and 20th centuries), and film (1940-present). She teaches language courses at the introductory and advanced levels, as well as culture and literature courses.
