Affiliated Master Student: Francisco Vallejo
I am a Global History M.A. student at the University of Bayreuth and affiliated with the research project “The London Moment”. I earned a B.A. with honours in History at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 2020 with the dissertation “Between vanilla and petroleum: the case of the oil-hacienda Palma Sola, 1880-1936”. In it, I dealt with the interrelations of agrarian structures and dynamics with the extractive industry in northern Veracruz, Mexico.
My participation in this project will focus on the exile of Juan Negrín and the Second Republic in London during World War II, as well as their connections with Mexico as a central destination for Spanish exile due to the Civil War.
