Caridad Ravenet Kenna specializes in 19th and 20th Centuries Iberian literatures. Her research has focused on the post-Franco narrative within the parameters of culture and politics, as well as the influence that time and memory have exerted on the production of such narrative, including the re-writing of the official history of the Franco years.
Her research interests also address the Hispanic Caribbean, in particular contemporary Cuba. She is currently comparing and analyzing the literary production of authors of the Spanish diaspora before 1975 with those of the Cuban diaspora from 1961 to the present.
