1. El diario de Jos Toledo: The Fantasies of a Middle-Class Bureaucrat

3. On the Cutting Edge: El jinete azul and the Aesthetics of the Abyss
4. Monobodies, Antibodies, and the Body Politic: Sara Levi Caldern's Dos mujeres
5. Just Another Material Girl? La hermana secreta de Anglica Mara and the Seduction of the Popular
