Sara Santamaria Colmenero

Research Assistant

Sara Santamaria Colmenero


I hold a PhD and a DEA in Contemporary History from the University of Valencia (2013, 2009), and a degree in History from the University of Valladolid (2006), where I took additional studies in Art History (2000-2002). Before coming to Aarhus University I worked as project officer and consultant for the European Observatory on Memories (2014/2015).

I am interested in Memory Studies, Cultural Studies and Theory, Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies and Gender Studies. At present I deal with the public uses of colonial past and the ways in which the memory of violent past is constructed and transmitted within the European and the colonized societies.

In my teaching I explore how the racialized, gendered, classed 'Other' is constructed through discourse and power relations in different contexts and how these processes of identification intersect. I am concerned with how the 'Other' is produced (and become different) through processes of discrimination.
