More specifically, the representation of the Latin American periphery (for example, the Amazon, the Maranhão and the Gran Chaco) in the colonial letters; the role of utopia in the cultural production of Latin America (XVI-XXI centuries); the cultural exchanges related to transatlantic studies (that is, the links between Spain and Spanish America) and transpacific studies (in a broad sense, the links between Asia, America and Spain); and the connections of the colonial letters with the contemporary Latin American narrative. On these issues he has published Peripheral vision: marginality and coloniality in the chronicles of Latin America (XVI-XVII and XX-XXI centuries) (Iberoamericana-Vervuert, 2013) and has co-edited with Alessandra Santos the collective volume The Utopian Impulse in Latin America ( Palgrave Macmillan, 2011).
