Biography

I am a student of Modern European history with a focus on twentieth-century Spain. More specifically, I am interested in the Spanish anarchist movement from the late nineteenth century to the end of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). My research looks at how anarchist intellectuals debated and theorized a libertarian communist revolution, and the extent to which those visions were realized during the war’s early months. I am also interested in the comparative study of revolutions, focusing on the relationship between theory and praxis and the reinvention of gender norms.
