  • His doctoral work defines the complexity and variety of contemporary Basque literature and situates its current flowering vis-a-vis world literature, especially in the context of marginalized literary traditions.

    By making these connections, the work not only centers Basque literature within contemporary Spanish literature but also reframes traditional ideas about what constitutes “world literature” and “Latin American literature” by focusing on writers who deliberately contest these traditions.

    Before focusing his training on literary studies, Jiménez studied Advertising & Public Relations and throughout has remained interested in the field, including holding various positions as Communications Manager, Editor and contributing author.

    In 2015, he received the Basque Literary Prize Finalist award for his short novel Moradero.
