Anja is a reader in Cultural and Intercultural Studies. Her expertise primarily lies in the representation of law in Hispanic culture. She is one of the world experts on Carmen de Burgos, an early twentieth century Spanish feminist.

She is the author of a ground-breaking book Women and the Law: Carmen de Burgos, an Early Feminist (2005). More recently, she has co-edited a collection of essays entitled Multiple Modernities: Carmen de Burgos, author and activist (2017) that brings together leading international specialists. Subsequent, and on-going, studies analyse the representation of professional women in Spanish film and television to explore to what extent these on-screen professionals are indicative of wider issues of social crisis.
