Ph.D. Institution

École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, France


My research interests are in the history of Granada and Spain in early-modern times, baroque civico-religious celebrations, representations of power and monarchy, the history of the patronages and in particular of Marial worship in the Hispanic context, the writing of history, tradition and festive texts (festive chronicles and sermons in particular).
My Ph.D. (Paris, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, 2008), titled, ‘Les fêtes civico-religieuses à Grenade, XVIème-XVIIème siècles’, focused on the argumentative system which appeared recurrently in public celebrations, perpetually unfolding the terms of conquest, loyalty, martyrdom and interrogations on the religious and ethnic origins of the city.
I am revising my dissertation for publication and while in Florence I intend to work on comparative studies of civico-religious experiences in Europe in early-modern times.
