Catalina Iannone’s research and teaching are grounded in comparative literary and cultural studies, with an emphasis on race, urban space, and visual culture on the Iberian Peninsula. She has published articles on these topics in Hispania, The Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies, and the Journal of Lusophone Studies and her book Contested Cities: Race, Culture, and Urban Development on the Iberian Peninsula is under contract with Vanderbilt University Press. Building on this research, Dr. Iannone is also developing an online platform titled “The Atlas of Resistance,” which will explore the evolution of Lavapiés since the turn of the 21st century through a display of geolocated cultural artifacts and quantitative data.
