Current Research

His work focused on the history of the Spanish "extrema derecha", especially the figure of Jose Maria Pemán. He then turned his attention to the history of antisemitism in Spain. His reflections on the Franco regime have naturally led to posing the problem of the Spanish imperial tradition. Recently, this line has led to favor the history of the Spanish colony of Guinea.
