Pablo Gómez Muñoz

19Assistant Professor at the Department of English and German of the University of Zaragoza (Spain). My research interests are transnational cinema, science fiction, borders, cosmopolitanism, globalization, spectacle, and climate change. I am a member of the research project “Between Utopia and Armageddon: The Spaces of the Cosmopolitan in Contemporary Cinema” (twitter: @SpacesCinema) and  I coordinate, along with Reuben Martens, the Speculative Fiction workgroup at NECS (European Network for Cinema and Media Studies):

I hold an MA in Textual and Cultural Studies and a PhD in English and Film from the University of Zaragoza. Previously, I graduated in English Studies from the University of Alcalá (Madrid), receiving the 2011-12 National Undergraduate Award in Arts and Humanities from the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. I have also been a student or a visiting scholar at the University of Vienna, Skidmore College (New York), and the University of California, Riverside.
