Bio

Kate Good studied nineteenth through twenty-first century Peninsular literature and cultural production. Her research engages with representations of gender and ability. It also examines issues of translation and national identity in the Catalan context.

Kate has taught a wide range of courses at UNC, from SPAN 100 online to two 400-level Catalan language and culture courses of her own design. She looks forward to teaching SPAN 265: Spanish for the Professions in summer 2018.

She is currently completing her dissertation, which analyzes gender dynamics and the construction of national literary culture[s] in early twentieth century Catalonia and beyond.

Kate has published on Caterina Albert/Víctor Català, Emilia Pardo Bazán, Mercè Rodoreda and others. She is currently working on a fourth essay that analyzes contemporary Catalan films in terms of their representations of nationalism and disability.
