More About Me

An enthusiastic traveler, Carlos has worked or studied in Guatemala, Mexico, Argentina, Belgium, France, Czechia, and Switzerland, and in the US in different States like California, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Arizona, Tennessee, and New York. One of the things he enjoys the most about teaching is the opportunity to share his experiences with students; encouraging them to experience the diversity of people, activities, and places that the World has to offer.

Carlos specializes in 21st Century Francophone War Film, and how this medium functions as social and interethnic dialogue that challenges established monolithic French historical mythologies. He also loves and studies different sports as means of intercultural exchange -particularly American and World Football-, and closely follows his favorite teams (Hala Madrid! Allez les Bleus! Go Niners!), along with the economic and social sides of the Sports World.
