Bryan Cameron's research centers on modern Spanish culture with a particular focus on literary, filmic, and ideological production from the eighteenth century to the present. Bryan's current book-length project, Paternity Tests: Destabilized Authority in the Late-Nineteenth-Century Spanish Novel, examines the allegory of literary parentage in novels by Leopoldo Alas ("Clarín"), Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, Eduardo López Bago, Narcís Oller, Benito Pérez Galdós, Alejandro Sawa and José Zahonero following the decay of the liberal program launched by the Revolution of 1868.

Bryan has published essays in Decimonónica and Revista Hispánica Moderna and recently edited a special issue of the Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies devoted to the 15-M Movement in Spain. He is also developing article-length projects on censorship in anti-Francoist cinema by examining the experimental works of understudied Spanish directors such as Pere Portabella, Carlos Durán, Jacinto Esteva, Gonzalo Suárez and Joaquim Jordà. Bryan's previous teaching experiences include lecturing in the United States at the University of Pennsylvania, Bryn Mawr College and New York University.
