I’m associate professor of/senior lecturer in comparative literature at the Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, where I was in charge of the Jean Monnet Chair «The Culture of European Integration» between 2012 and 2015, and honorary chair professor at Sichuan University. My research and teaching focus on comparative literature, the idea of European literature, small/minor literatures, ecocriticism, cosmopolitanism, migration, literary geography, translation, transatlantic studies, and world literature. I was president of the Réseau européen d’études littéraires comparées between 2013 and 2015. Now I’m vice-president of the Sociedad Española de Literatura General y Comparada, secretary of the Coordinating Committee for the Comparative Literary History in European Languages of the International Comparative Literature Association, member of the Academy of Europe, member of the Stockholm Collegium of World Literary History, and member of the advisory board of the Harvard Institute for World Literature, among other scientific and professional responsibilities.
