Kathleen M. Vernon
|Kathleen Vernon's areas of research focus primarily these days on cinema and popular culture, especially popular song, in Spain and Latin America in the 20th century. She is currently involved in two collective international research projects. The first is an oral history of cinema-going in Spain in the two decades following the Spanish Civil War, the results of which, The Mediation of Everyday Life: An Oral History of Cinema-Going in 1940s and 1950s Spain will be published in 2007 by Berghan Books. The second is a spin off from the first and deals with film, fashion and photography in film and popular magazines in 1940s and 1950s Spain. She is also completing a monograph on the role of popular cinema, song and media in Spain from the 1930s to the present, titled The Rhythms of History: Cinema, Music and Cultural Memory in Contemporary Spain.
