Mónica Martín

22Lecturer at the Department of English Studies of the University of Zaragoza. My research interests include utopia and dystopia in cinema, cosmopolitan hopes in 21st-century films, social movements, feminism, ecocriticism and the sociology of globalization.

My PhD thesis (2020) analyses cosmopolitan aspirations in contemporary movies. It explores how the films of globalization illustrate the rebirth of utopia, conceived as an open method grounded in egalitarian and ecological principles. I hold an MA in Film Studies from University College London and I am a member of the research project “From Utopia to Armageddon: The Spaces of the Cosmopolitan in Contemporary Cinema.”
