Esther Lomas Sampedro teaches Spanish language courses, as well as Business Spanish, Spanish Conversation and Composition, and Approaches to Literature. Her research focuses on contemporary Spain, particularly on the transformations the city of Madrid underwent since Franco's death, and the inception of democracy until its consolidation in the 1990s. In her dissertation, "Postmodern Madrid: Changing Identities in the Post-Franco era," in addition to discussing articles from Villa de Madrid and La Luna de Madrid, she examines a number of movies by Pedro Almodovar and others, as well as novels by Rosa Montero, Almudena Grandes, Belén Gopegui, José Ángel Mañas, Juan Gracia and Lucía Etxebarria, which all take place in Madrid and reflect key moments in the history of the city from the transition period to the 1990s.
