Vanesa Rodriguez-Galindo

Adjunct Faculty




Vanesa Rodriguez-Galindo is a cultural and visual historian. Her research interests include urban studies, print cultures in Spain and Latin America, transnationalism, and women’s studies. She holds an MA in Metropolitan History from the Institute of Historical Research, University of London, and a PhD in History of Art from UNED, Madrid. Her book project, to be published with Manchester University Press, examines visual culture, illustrated print media, and urban identities in nineteenth-century Spain. It explores what being modern meant to people in their daily lives and reframes urban modernity from a ‘glocal’ perspective. Her research has been supported by the Spanish Ministry of Culture and has been recognized by the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies. In addition to her academic work, Rodriguez-Galindo has held research positions at Musée d’Orsay, The National Archives of the United Kingdom, and Fundación Juan March, Madrid. She was a junior research fellow at the Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture, University of Westminster and a visiting scholar at University of Zurich and University of Miami. At FIU, she teaches courses on modern Europe and cultural history.
