Geraldine Lublin's primary research area is Patagonia in historical perspective. She is the author of Memoir and Identity in Welsh Patagonia: Voices from a settler community in Argentina (UWP, 2017), which critically explores autobiographical materials written by Welsh descendants towards the end of the twentieth century. Her initial focus on the ‘special’ standing of the Welsh community in Chubut in relation to the region and the rest of Argentina led her to develop an interest in the wider dynamics of the region, including nation-building in Argentina, indigenous populations and settler colonial theory. Wider research interests include Latin American identities and nation-building, diasporas and transnational groups, interculturalism and digital humanities. Through her training and professional practice, she has also gained expertise in Translation Studies and Welsh-medium teaching. Geraldine has recently been inspired by Pedagogy of Degrowth approaches to undertake projects which contribute to highlight how the climate crisis, global inequalities and the dominant growth-oriented economic culture are closely interrelated.

She is Co-Director of CEPSAM (the Centre for the Comparative Study of Portugal, Spain and the Americas) at Swansea University.
