Research interests

  • Modern Spanish Literature (18th and 19th centuries)
  • Enlightenment and Romanticism
  • Politics, History and Literature
  • Spanish Horror Cinema

His main interest is Modern Spanish Literature and History of Ideas, and in particular the relationship established between fiction, history and politics. The focus of his doctoral research was on the literary image of the Spanish Inquisition in Spain between 1789 and 1843, and how the Tribunal was used by its enemies as a political myth representing both a break with the past and a rebirth into a new era of freedom and progress.

He is currently pursuing research in three areas: literature, politics and historiography in eighteenth and nineteenth-century Spain; exile and national identity (particularly in the 1823-1833 Spanish Liberal exile in England) and Spanish horror cinema.
