Professor Gold was born and raised in New York City. She received her B.A. in Spanish from Mount Holyoke College and her M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Romance Languages from the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to Emory, she taught at Columbia University and Northwestern University. Her fields of specialization include: 19th-21st century Peninsular Spanish literature and culture; narrative theory; the urban imaginary; human rights discourse; Sephardic and Latin American Jewish studies and Ladino language. Her essay, “Illustrated Histories: The National Subject and ‘the Jew’ in Nineteenth-Century Spanish Art,” appeared in the Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies (2009). She is the author of The Reframing of Realism: Galdós and the Discourses of the Nineteenth-Century Spanish Novel (Duke UP) and has published articles in journals including MLN, España Contemporánea, Hispanic Review, Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos, Neophilologus, Revista Hispánica Moderna, and Anales Galdosianos. Presently she is completing a book manuscript on the poetics and politics of Spanish epistolary discourse from the 18th century to the present. She is a past president of the Asociación Internacional de Galdosistas and currently serves as vice president of both the Sociedad de Literatura Española del Siglo XIX and the Ibero-American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Professor Gold is a past recipient of an American Council of Learned Societies fellowship and is also a former fellow at Emory’s Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry.
