She is co-editor of Textos y contextos de Galdós (Madrid 1994) and, as guest editor, she produced a monographic issue entitled Toward a Poetics of Realism / Hacia una poética del realismo of the journal Letras Peninsulares (Spring 2000).

Currently she is a contributor to several volumes of essays, among them A New History of Spanish Literature, edited by David T. Gies (Cambridge University Press, 2005). She has authored more than 80 scholarly articles of literary and cultural criticism.
