PROJECT: His project includes a monograph entitled Invention of Space. City, Travel and Literature. This is a book, which deals with issues of multiplicity and heterogeneity in the urban experience, and its specificity in the Hispanic world; and also studies several kinds of travelogues, which developed in the twentieth-century. It is a twofold enterprise, as it presents the many versions that the writing of the city and travelogues has adopted throughout the twentieth-century.
