Professor Alvarez presents at conference, publishes book chapter
In late May 2021, upon the recommendation of Dr. David Álvarez, the University of Gibraltar hosted the annual international congress of the Mediterranean Studies Association for the first time. Dr. Álvarez chaired a panel on Mediterranean borderlands for which two scholars, himself included, delivered papers on the work of Gibraltarian novelist and essayist, M.G. Sanchez. A member of GVSU's English Department since 1997, and a Gibraltarian himself, Dr. Álvarez is also a senior researcher at the University of Gibraltar's Centre for Gibraltarian and Mediterranean Studies.
In addition to presenting at the conference, Dr. Alvarez also wrote a chapter, "Bridging Migratory Faultlines: Francis Alÿs's Performance at the Strait of Gibraltar," for a book, Figures of the Migrant: The Roles of Literature and the Arts in Representing Migration, published by Routledge.
