He is also interested in peripheral nationalisms in Spain, and has published several works on Basque literature and culture.

His next book-length project examines the relationship between film and war from the Spanish-American War (1898) through the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) and its impact in the emergence of Modernity in Spain.
