Prof. García Serrano (Conquista de la Sierra, Spain) studied Hispanic Philology-Linguistics at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid. She received her Ph.D. in Contemporary Latin American Literature from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In her doctoral dissertation she analyzed the interplay between orality and writing in Tres tristes tigres by Guillermo Cabrera Infante. Since then she has devoted most of her research efforts to the study of contemporary Hispanic women’s narrative. Her more recent publications have focused on depictions of women suffering from mental illnesses. Mujeres perturbadas en la narrativa hispana (2014) is the most recent result of her endeavors. Another interest of hers is theoretical approaches to the teaching of foreign languages and cultures. She is the co-author of a post-intermediate Spanish textbook.
