His postdoctoral research aims to reconstruct Salles Gomes’s international and intellectual network. The project is conducted at Faculty 8 (History, Latin American History) of the University of Bremen and is also connected to the Prof. Dr. Delia González de Reufels’ transdisciplinary research lab “Audiovisual Media and Historiography”.
