Professor Núria Triana Toribio

Professor of Hispanic Studies


Professor Núria Triana Toribio is an established scholar on the areas of national cinema and popular culture in Spain. Her main research is in the fields of popular culture and subculture (Spanish Punk) and film cultures. 

These two interests are linked by her longstanding interest in inclusions and exclusions in histories of cinema and popular culture more broadly. This has taken her to areas such as national cinemas, popular genres and auteurism; the study of film festivals; contemporary Hispanic film cultures; film criticism and popular music. 

Her latest monograph is Spanish Film Cultures (2016, bfi/Palgrave). She is the author of Spanish National Cinema (Routledge, 2003) and co-author of The Cinema of Álex de la Iglesia (Manchester University Press, 2007). She is also co-editor of the series ‘Spanish and Latin American Filmmakers’ for Manchester University Press. 

Her most recent work has appeared in the Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies, Lectora, and Hispanic Research Journal. Her current project is a co-edited book of interviews with Spanish, Portuguese and Chicana Punk women. 


Núria teaches modules on Spanish history, language, popular culture and cinema.
