My current research project explores visions of a multi-ethnic society in contemporary Spanish and Catalan narrative and film. In this project, I focus on how global migrations have changed the racial and cultural landscape of Spain, thus bringing the question of intercultural and religious dialogue to the forefront of debates on national definition. Of particular interest are themes of identity, memory, loss, assimilation, and intercultural debates around notions of value, reason and modernity.
