PhD Candidate, Department of Spanish and Portuguese, GSAS

Synopsis of Research in Shanghai (September 7 - December 4):

Lopez’s research project, provisionally entitled "Metaphors We Kill By: A Critical Metaphor Analysis of (Counter) Jihadist Propaganda in Contemporary Spain (2004-2017)", aims at exposing the propagandistic nature of the current cultural and political uses of the notion of jihad in Contemporary Spain. In the grand scheme of things, however, the significance of his project is much larger: it is about raising awareness on the dangers of State-sponsored ideological manipulation and building peace and understanding at a global scale through the advancement of knowledge. China plays a key role in this in that its recent emergence as a global security actor does affect core European interests, particularly in the field counter-terrorist cooperation in the Middle East and South Asia.
