Christina Bezari is a senior post-doctoral fellow at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). Her research is located at the intersection of Spanish and comparative literature, translation studies and women’s history. She is the author of Transnational Modernity in Southern Europe: Women’s Periodicals and Salon Culture (Routledge, 2022) and the co-editor of “Las Vanguardistas: Women and the Avant-Garde in Ibero-America” (2023). Her current project proposes a comparative study of Spanish and Belgian modernisms and examines the transnational networks that shaped early twentieth-century literary culture. Funded by the FNRS, this project examines a corpus of Spanish and Belgian magazines and explores the role of literary translators in the transnational circulation of modernist literature.
Christina worked for Ghent University between 2016 and 2023. She was a member of the ERC-funded project “Agents of Change: Women Editors and Socio-Cultural Transformation in Europe”. Upon completion of her doctoral thesis, she obtained funding for a post-doctoral project entitled “Las Vanguardistas: Spanish Women Poets and the International Avant-Garde”, during which she travelled to Argentina, Iceland, Italy, Sweden, Canada and the United States as a guest lecturer. Her research has been published in three languages (English, Spanish and French) and has examined women’s participation in avant-garde movements, cultural flows and translations in early twentieth-century magazines and women’s literature in Spain, Portugal and South America. In 2017, she co-directed the project “Les imaginaires de la traduction” at Sorbonne University.
