Sergio Martínez Rey

Broadly, my main areas of interest are canonicity and cultural elitism in Spain and their bilateral relationship with Europe and Latin America, which would also include the history of Philology and censorship, and the institutionalization and politicization of literature, with special regard to the questions of religion and national identities. More specifically, I am interested in the ways that cultural hegemony relates to the concepts of modernity, popularity, and coloniality, and to regionalisms and marginal forms of cultural expression involving morally problematic notions and images, such as erotica, pornography, and some threads of comic literature, especially in the Iberian context from the 18th century to the present. Ultimately, my intention is to make a serious and meaningful scholarly effort to understand the rationale behind the design of cultural canons and counter-canonic works, current and past, in the Iberian, European, and Latin American contexts.
