I currently am an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at the Museum of the City of New York and have just completed my Ph.D. in Early Modern and Modern History at Fordham University. I have recently accepted a Lecturer position at Harvard University in the Department of History and Literature beginning in July 2016. I have also held fellowships from the United States Library of Congress, the Spanish Ministry of Education, amongst others.
I study transatlantic cultural history, urban history, and everyday dissent in youth, bohemian, queer and subaltern cultures in contemporary history. I have researched, presented, and written internationally on questions related to exile and migration, the creation of democratic spaces, fascism, anarchism, queer culture, print culture, comic books, medicine, and technology. My current project looks at youth culture in the 1950s through the 80s.
A Little More
I have received support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Santander Universities, Fordham University, the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport and the Swann Foundation at the United States Library of Congress. I hold a Ph.D. and M.A. in History, a B.A.I.S. in European Studies, and a B.A. in Spanish Literature. In my spare time, I am an advocate for children’s rights, write poetry, and make comic books and zines.
If I could choose any way to spend my day, it most likely would be at some nameless café in some unknown corner of the world while reading a comic book, writing, reading a novel, listening to NPR or reading the New York Times online. In my free time I draw, read, write, and try to update my various websites.
