Biographical details

Rubén Pérez-Hidalgo holds a PhD in Hispanic Studies from the University of Illinois at Chicago. His research focuses on the representation of popular subjects from a comparative as well as a transatlantic angle. He’s also interested in working-class culture of the early 20th century in Mexico and Spain, about which he has published several articles. He’s specially interested in analyzing how radical politics shape and form discourses, and how those are received by wider audiences.

Research interests

Social justice, anarchism, Marxism, working-class culture, radical politics

Teaching and supervision

I’m currently coordinating Levels 1 and 2 of Spanish, as well as courses on social change and politics of Spain and Latin America.

In the past, I’ve mainly taught Spanish for bilinguals and multiple courses within the field of cultural studies in the Hispanic world.

Current projects

I am currently working on several articles dealing with working-class culture in Spain, Mexico and Argentina.

I am also preparing a book manuscript that explores the relationship between the media and radical politics from a transnational perspective.
