My main areas of research are the history of Spanish and Catalan languages from a political, cultural, and ideological point of view. I focus on how language relates to issues such as identity, nation, and power in the past and in the present, especially in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period. I am interested in how cultural and intellectual history has had an influence on language ideology. Moreover, because of my political, cultural, and ideological approach to the history of language, I have also analyzed literary texts and have published on Medieval and Early Modern Catalan and Spanish Literature. My first book, Literatura o imperio: la construcción de las lenguas castellana y catalana en la España renacentista was published by Juan de la Cuesta—Hispanic Monographs in 2008. My second book, The Making of Catalan Linguistic Identity in Medieval and Early Modern Times, Palgrave Macmillan, will be published in February 2018: https://www.palgrave.com/la/book/9783319720791 I have also published in several journals including La Corónica, Neophilologus, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, Hispanic Research Journal, Hispanófila, Romanistisches Jahrbuch, Calíope, eHumanista and Crítica Hispánica.
