Gorka Bilbao Terreros (Ph.D., University of Liverpool, UK) joined Princeton University in Spring 2012. His current research focuses on the representations of Basque identity in cinema both in the European homeland and in the American diaspora, with a specific interest in the study of the collision between atavistic and intransigent nationalistic archetypes once thought to inhibit alternative identitary forms and the transgressive gender roles that attempt to challenge them. He has also published articles on modern Spanish and Latin American literature, particularly on the works of Jorge Luis Borges and Miguel de Unamuno, and acted as a reviewer for several international journals.

At Princeton University, he has acted as coordinator for SPA209 Spanish Culture and Language through Cinema and SPA206 Legal and Business Spanish, and has taught a variety of courses at varying levels. He is also a Fulbright faculty adviser.
