Ameya Tripathi researches the modern literatures and cultures of Spain in the context of colonialism, revolution, migration and translation. His current book project, Documents of Revolution: Literacy, Translation, and Internationalism in the Spanish Civil War argues that revolutionary documents across poetry, prose, and multimedia including radio broadcasts, films, and scrapbooks, require a different, anti-colonial understanding of documents. This project explores local and visiting authors, including Spanish authors such as Mateo Santos, Miguel Hernández and María Teresa León; and visiting authors including Nicolás Guillén, Langston Hughes, George Orwell, and Nancy Cunard. As a range of diverse anarchist, Black, and feminist internationalisms collided, Spain became the crucible for a new kind of dissident documentary style. This project will be expanded by considering non-aligned internationalism in the context of the war, including a wide range of protagonists from India, Palestine, Equatorial Guinea, Morocco, Mexico and Cuba. Ameya's next project will focus on short urban writing, such as the microrelato, in the context of the growth of ‘informal empire”, as declining imperial powers continued to wield global influence through tax havens, monopolies, and hierarchical regimes of urban planning and organization.
