Amanullah De Sondy Ph. She focuses on the relationship between literature and painting in nineteenth-century novels. Her dissertation, "The Politics and Poetics of Ekphrasis in Nineteenth-Century French Art Novel" examines descriptions of paintings, explores the question of the representation of the female body both on canvas and in the text, and questions the emergence of a discourse on abstract art in predominantly Realist and Naturalist texts.
Eating away at his artistic power, Manette turns the promising Coriolis into painter whose "madness of the eyes" propels his painting in the realm of nonfigurative art. The Goncourts' anti-Semitic prose converges with their art criticism to offer a reflection on artistic madness and genius. Her areas of specialization are 20th century Latin American literature and cinema. She is interested in interdisciplinary studies of aesthetics, ethics, technology, and consumer and popular culture. Music, myth and memory combine here to explore flamenco in a setting that is the birthplace of its most celebrated genius.
Flamenco propagates itself not so much in terms of authenticity, but through iteration, performance and cultural translation. This talk will explore questions of music in terms of the conceptual frames of iteration and performance.
Nair shall argue that the film decenters and uproots ideas of authenticity, origin and rooting through its portrayal of flamenco as a mode of travel, on the road and in ceaseless flow. In this sense, music, myth and memory all offer cultural narratives that trace a shifting global topography of flamenco, whose movement exceeds attempts at freezing, containment or appropriation. Her research is in Cultural Studies, with a particular interest in theories and representations of migration, mobility, urban spaces, displacement, ethnicity and gender.
She writes mainly on photography, film and music in these contexts and relies on an interdisciplinary approach that includes fieldwork. She is the author of dozens of essays published in journals and edited collections. In addition to all this prolific research activity, she is the Principal Editor of Crossings: Journal of Migration and Culture and she serves on the editorial board of the Hispanic Research Journal. As Director of the Centre for the Study of Migration, Nair facilitates expressions of interest for interdisciplinary collaboration on migration-related research across faculties and institutions at Queen Mary and beyond.

The influx of such wealth contributed to the expansion of the Spanish empire, but it also raised doubts and insecurities about the meaning and function of money, the ideals of court and civility, and the structure of commerce and credit. New World Gold shows that, far from being a stabilizing force, the flow of gold from the Americas created anxieties among Spaniards and shaped a host of distinct behaviors, cultural practices, and intellectual pursuits on both sides of the Atlantic. These cultural anxieties, she argues, rendered the discovery of gold paradoxically disastrous for Spanish society.

In the days of the invention of the printing press and the discovery of America, the Italian architects of the Renaissance designed a new residential typology: the palace.
