Sabbatical 2018-2019 Prof. Christiane Stallaert.

My research as a hispanist and anthropologist focuses on social and political themes (nationalism, interethnic and interreligious society, migration, human rights, historical memory), and its interrelations. The cultural border is central to my work, which is inter- and transdisciplinary, at the intersection of Anthropology, Translation Studies and History. Geographically, my research domain is in Spain and Latin America (Mexico, Brazil, Andean region). The three research axes are:1. Translation Mediated Representation of the Holocaust / Nazism in Transatlantic Settings2. Indigenous Spaces in Europe / Latin America from a Decolonial and Human Rights Perspective3. Ethnicity, nationalism, transmodernityDuring sabbatical leave these three research axes will be further explored on the basis of ethnographic fieldwork, archive research and literature study in the light of a renewed conceptual interpretation framework with regard to transatlantic cultural transfers, decoloniality, transmodernity. The research results will be processed in book form, with the provisional working title: 'Transmodern Europe. Towards a micro-anthropology of Globalization '.
