Heike Scharm, a native of Germany, teaches upper division classes in Spanish and Transatlantic literatures, cultures, and theory. She received her PhD from Brown University in 2009, specializing in the contemporary literatures of Spain and Latin America. Her recent book, a philosophical reading of Javier Marías's novels (El Tiempo y el Ser en Javier Marías, Rodopi 2013) reflects her general interest in interdisciplinary and comparative approaches (philosophy, literature, film, art in Spain, Latin America, and Europe).

Her ongoing research focuses on transatlantic approaches and discourses on modernity in contemporary Hispanic fiction, in connection with other European writers. She is currently working on a book exploring globalization's impact on literature (ImagiNations: Postnational Perspectives in Hispanic Literature).
