Dr David Miranda-Barreiro
Research Interests: My main research interests revolve around issues of mobility (travel writing, migration, exile) and how they are represented in both literature and cinema. I have worked mostly on the relations between Spain and the US (with a specific focus on New York City). After publishing a monograph on literary representations of New York in early twentieth century Spanish narrative, my current research project focuses on the connections between Galicia and New York. I am also studying comic books and graphic novels, especially graphic biographies of Galician intellectuals (Alfonso Daniel Rodríguez Castelao, Alexandre Bóveda, Vicente Risco, Uxío Novoneyra and Lois Pereiro amongst others).
Keywords: travel writing, migration, exile, literature, cinema, comic books.
Countries of specialism: Spain, Galicia, United States.
