Fernando Sánchez López is a third-year student the Iberian Studies Ph.D. program. More specifically, he is interested in film studies and comparative literature, with special application to contemporary Spain. His current research deals with the role of popular genres in Spanish film, especially after the financial crash in 2008. More specifically, he is analyzing the current proliferation of Spanish neo-noir and how it might be a symptom of both the commercial need to use transnational modes of narration and the social discontent regarding political/institutional corruption in the country. Extra academically, he is an author and editor in the online magazine Mutaciones, which deals with film criticism.
