I have taught Spanish at Fordham since 2010. Besides teaching, my research and writing is focused on the intersection of politics and culture in Contemporary Spain. I am currently finishing a book manuscript on how the crises, movements and new political initiatives within the last decade (2008-2020) in Spain have changed the political culture of Spanish Democracy. My research interests include Cultural Studies, Social movements; Marxism; Theories of Populism; Municipalism; Far Right; Political and Social Documentary and Film, among other topics. My academic research has been published in the Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies, boundary2 and other publications and collective books.
Beyond academia, I write frequently in the press about US and Spain’s culture and politics on both sides of the Atlantic. My writings have appeared at Public Books, Jacobin, and InTheseTimes, among other outlets in the US, and at CTXT and El Salto in Spain. I have collaborated with academic spaces like NYU’s Urban Democracy Lab (where I was Visiting Scholar in 2020/21), and with institutions such as Rosa-Luxemburg Stiftung-NYC Office and Friedrich-Ebert Stiftung-NYC Office. I am a member of the Instituto de Estudios Culturales y Cambio Social (IECCS) and Minim Municipalist Observatory.
