We are thrilled to announce a special session of the Job Market Workshop and the Department of Iberian and Latin American Cultures.
 
Professor Eloi Grasset will be discussing his experience navigating the academic job market, as well as the ins and outs of the tenure-track line. While this conversation will be especially relevant to those applying for positions in Spanish and Portuguese Departments, Prof. Grasset's trajectory and his background as an international scholar working at the intersection of Literary Studies, Film Studies, and French (among other fields) may be of interest to students in other DLCL programs.
 
 
Eloi Grasset is an Associate Professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he lectures on Iberian literatures, cinema and cultural studies. After graduating with a PhD from the Université de la Sorbonne, he served as an assistant professor at the Universitat de Barcelona and as a lecturer at Harvard University. His research on Iberian cultures and Catalan intellectual history has been published in several peer-reviewed journals and edited volumes. His first sole-authored book, titled La Trama Mortal. Pere Gimferrer y la política de la literatura (1962-1985) was published in 2020 by Editorial Renacimiento. Currently, he is working on two new research projects: one focusing on cinephilia and spectatorship in late Francoism, and the other on the intersection between politics and gastronomy during the transition towards democracy in Catalonia.
 
This event will be held in English. Food and drinks will be served.
