Gayle completed her Ph.D. in Romance Languages at Princeton University, specializing in 19th-20th century Spanish literature and film. Her research has focused on comparative avant-garde literature and film of the 1920s and 1930s and, more recently, on strategies of cross-cultural representation. Her book Scripted Geographies (Bucknell University Press 2007) falls into this latter category as does her current project, nearing completion, on Spanish renderings of the foreign in the wake of the Spanish-American War. She enjoys teaching a wide variety of courses in both Spanish language study and on themes more closely related to her own areas of research, including a first-year seminar on how the Spanish Civil War has been re-imagined in literature and film and courses for UVM's Global Studies program on globalized mobilities and cultural identity. Her next research project explores cross-cultural representation in 21st-century Spain.
