Project Directors

Luis Argeo is a journalist and documentary filmmaker currently based in Gijón, Asturias, Spain. A graduate of the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Argeo is the author of more than 15 travel books published by Spain’s most prestigious press in that sector, Anaya Touring. He is also the writer, producer and director of the documentary films that explore Spaniards in the US: AsturianUS (2006), Corsino, by Cole Kivlin (2010).

James D. Fernández is Collegiate Professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at NYU. Fernández received his PhD in Romance Languages and Literatures from Princeton University, and taught at Yale University for 7 years before joining the faculty of NYU in 1995. He is the author of Apology to Apostrophe: Autobiography and the Rhetoric of Self-Representation in Spain (Duke, 1992) and Brevísima relación de la construcción de España (Polifemo, 2013).

Together, Argeo and Fernández have produced the book Invisible Immigrants: Spaniards in the US (WSR, 2014): and three documentary films: Dan Albert’s Paella / La paella de Daniel Albert; A Legacy of Smoke / Un legado de humo; and The Weight of Remembering / La plomada.

The Project

Our primary goal is to create a multi-media archive that will document the history of Spanish immigrants in the United States.

As we pursue that goal, whenever we come across particularly compelling material, we produce an intervention, which might be a documentary film, a book, an exhibition or a podcast.

The revenue produced by those interventions is used to fund our ongoing research.
