Research overview

My main field of research is related to the primary sources for the study of Medieval and Renaissance Iberian literatures and cultures, especially what we called 'Poesía de cancionero' (Songbook Poetry) written in Spanish. Other research lines I am involved with are Spanish vernacular Humanism, nobility’s patronage of Spanish culture, and the Islamic, Hebrew, and Christian background of medieval Iberia. I seek to show how medieval literature, especially poetry, must be studied within the context of the political and social culture from which it emerges. My research is also focused on the role of gender and racial issues in the construction of authorship, in particular the role of both women and Jewish and converso writers, in the midst of the turmoil of the 15th-16th centuries.
I have been involved in Digital Humanities since 1999, when I joined the project ADMYTE (http://goo.gl/Vyq5JG). Later on, in 2002, I joined the PhiloBiblon Project (http://goo.gl/IkgUI4) and I am currently Director of the Cilengua PhiloBiblon Seminar (https://goo.gl/SwWQR0), held by Fundación Cilengua, La Rioja-Spain. I recently began to write a blog (http://opr71.hypotheses.org/) in which I am trying to spread both my research and my teaching to the general public, for I consider essential the popularization of the research done as a logical counterweight to any scientific investigations carried out.
