Daniela Flesler (Ph.D. Tulane University, 2001) specializes in Contemporary Spanish Peninsular Cultural Studies, with a focus on issues of transnationalism and the construction of national identities. Her book The Return of the Moor: Moroccan Immigration in Contemporary Spain, released in 2008 from Purdue UP, examines the anxiety permeating Spain's reception of contemporary Moroccan immigrants through an interdisciplinary analysis of social, fictional and performative texts. It argues that current Spanish social reactions and cultural productions about Moroccans reveal the acute tensions inherent to Spain's liminal position between Europe and Africa. She has published essays in Revista de Estudios HispánicosArizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural StudiesJournal of Spanish Cultural StudiesStudies in Hispanic CinemasDieciocho and Crítica Hispánica. She is currently working on two book projects: a history of the "Loss of Spain" legend from the 8th to the 21st centuries, and an analysis of Spain's new tourist initiatives in relation to its Muslim and Jewish heritages, in collaboration with Adrián Pérez Melgosa.

She has recently co-edited with Tabea Linhard and Adrián Pérez Melgosa, Revisiting Jewish Spain in the Modern Era. (Routledge, 2013. 168 pages).
