About Professor Gómez-Bravo
Currently, Professor Gómez-Bravo is working on a book-length project on the relation between food and ethnic identity, and in particular the attention paid by the Inquisition to food practices of Jews and Muslims leading to the exercise of racial profiling. She is also studying the ways in which these inquisitorial methods were applied in later centuries to other groups such as Native Americans and ethnic minorities.
Professor Gómez-Bravo has received grants and fellowships from the following sources: National Endowment for the Humanities, American Philosophical Society, Program for Cultural Cooperation between Spain and US Universities, Purdue University, and UC Berkeley. Her work has appeared in Rhetorica, Hispanic Review, Romance Philology, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, Hispania and La Corónica, among others.
