Natasha Tanna

Dr Natasha Tanna



Leverhulme Fellowship at UCL on queer and decolonial feminisms in Latin American literature


Natasha Tanna was a Lecturer in Spanish at Christ’s College. She specialises in modern Latin American, Spanish, and Catalan literature, with a particular focus on gender, sexuality, exile, diaspora, and transnational identities. Her book Queer Genealogies in Transnational Barcelona (Legenda) explores queer temporalities and alternative communities in works published from the 1960s onwards by the Catalan Maria-Mercè Marçal, Montevideo-born Cristina Peri Rossi, and Buenos Aires-born Flavia Company. It responds to the following questions: How do queer texts engage traditional perceptions of family, nation, and the literary canon? How do readers and writers connect with their predecessors? Natasha is currently working on the Cuban author Ena Lucía Portela, including how her texts draw on the life and work of the North American writer, Djuna Barnes.
