About          

Claudio Palomares Salas holds a PhD in Spanish from the University of Toronto. He has taught Hispanic literature, culture, cinema, language and translation courses at McGill University, the University of Toronto, and Trent University. Since 2014, he is Assistant Professor of Hispanic Studies at Queen’s.

His current research focuses on the avant-garde movements in Mexico and Spain (1918-1927) and in the Mexican and Latin American protest song. He is the author of Transatlantic Counterpoints: Spaces of the Hispanic Avant-Garde (to be published in 2019). His work has been published in Music & Politics (2018), The International Yearbook of Futurism Studies (2017), The Bulletin of Hispanic Studies (2017), Letras Hispanas (2015), and Graffylia (2014).

Prof. Palomares has been invited to talk at several universities including the University of Helsinki (Finland, 2017); the State University of California (Sacramento, 2017); Converse College (Spartanburg, South Carolina, 2017); Concordia University (Montreal, 2015); De Paul University (Chicago, 2014); Western University (London, 2014), among others.

As a musician, he has toured and recorded with several Canadian and Latin American artists as drummer and percussionist. At Queen’s, he developed a popular course called: Hips don’t Lie? Music and Culture in Latin America (LLCU 244) in which students approach Latin American history and culture through the study of its musical production.

He has also published the novel El lugar más triste para soñar (2014) and the short-story El mapa (2016).
