I work at the intersection of discourses in medieval Iberian literatures, that is, I like asking questions that come up when one sees an apparently unrelated or distant sphere intervening in the literary, whether it be politics, or cartography, or economics, which is what I am currently working on for a book project. As an extension of this, I am interested in how the medieval intervenes in other periods, other geographies, that is, how the medieval informs (or disinforms) discourses about modernity or secularism or civilization, and how it shapes imperial and colonial projects, or contemporary Latin American literatures.
