MemberSandra Suárez García

My name is Sandra Suárez García and I am currently finishing my PhD in History at the University of Granada. I have a degree in History from the University of Santiago de Compostela. Currently I am a predoctoral researcher at the University of Granada in the Department of Historiographic Sciences and Techniques. I have taught in the History Degree at the same university. I have been part of research projects and published scientific articles, as well as carrying out dissemination tasks in scientific and non-scientific contexts. My main focus of study resides in the aristocratic property of the Nasrid elites (13th to 16th centuries) and what happens to these assets after the Castilian conquest of 1492. Besides this, I am especially interested in topics such as the Jewish minority of the Nasrid kingdom and the Kingdom of Castile. It is also very interesting for me to see how the Medieval History of the Iberian Peninsula is shown through the media.

My main field of research is related to the primary sources for the study of Medieval and Renaissance Iberian literatures and cultures, especially what we called ‘Poesía de cancionero’ (Songbook Poetry) written in Spanish. Other research lines I am involved with are Spanish vernacular Humanism, nobility’s patronage of Spanish culture, and the Islamic, Hebrew, and Christian background of medieval Iberia. I seek to show how medieval literature, especially poetry, must be studied within the context of the political and social culture from which it emerges. My research is also focused on the role of gender and racial issues in the construction of authorship, in particular the role of both women and Jewish and converso writers, in the midst of the turmoil of the 15th-16th centuries. I have been involved in Digital Humanities since 1999, when I joined ADMYTE. Later on, in 2002, I joined the PhiloBiblon Project as a Junior Assistant; I currently serve there as Co-Director of BETA (Bibliografía Española de Textos Antiguos) and collaborator of both BITECA (Bibliografia de textos antics catalans, valencians i balears) and BIPA (Bibliografía de la Poesía Áurea). I have also the pleasure of being the Director of the PhiloBiblon Seminar, a workshop in which we train students in our database and methods. The first two editions of this Seminar were held at San Millán de la Cogolla, La Rioja under the patronage of Cilengua; the third edition was celebrated in June 2017 at the Biblioteca Nacional de España, Madrid. From the fourth edition on forward, June 2018 and June 2019, the Seminar had one more session at Biblioteca Marqués de Valdecilla (UCM), aside from the one at BNE. Because of the well-known circumstances related to the spread of the coronavirus, the sixth edition was held online, June 24-26th, 2020, and the forthcoming seventh edition will be also held online on June 29-30th, 2021. We aim to return to the usual structure of our seminar next year. A few years ago I began to write a blog  in which I am trying to spread both my research and my teaching to the general public, for I consider essential the popularization of my research as a counterweight to its scientific essence.

In 2011 I moved to Lisbon (Portugal) where I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Instituto de Etnomusicologia (INET-MD) of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa thanks to  a postdoctoral research fellowship from the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia. More recently I have been working as a research fellow at Queen’s University Belfast. I have been presenting my research regularly in national and international conferences. In 2012, I published my first monograph (Cubaneando en Barcelona.

I am also an active member of several international learned societies in the fields of anthropology and music studies (SEM, ICTM, EASA, SIBE). I have contributed to several national and international research projects, participating in the creation and scientific coordination of the research network LXnights, based at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. In 2013 I was appointed as editor of TRANS-Transcultural Music Review, a leading scientic journal in the field of music studies in the Spanish-speaking world. I am also member of the Editorial Board of the journal Cadernos de Arte e Antropologia and Archiv für Textmusikforschung. My scientific judgment is often required by different national and international institutions to evaluate academic work.
