Writer and researcher
Sant Joan Desvalls, Girona


Carlos Gámez Pérez (Barcelona. 1969) is a writer and professor. He holds a MFA in literary creation for the UPF. In 2012 he won the Cafè Món award for 'Artefactos' (Sloper). In 2018 he published the novel 'Malas noticias desde La Isla' (Katakana, 2018). His short stories have been selected in several anthologies. As an academician, he is Associate Professor in the Department of Literary and Linguistic Education, at the University of Barcelona. He has published an academic essay on science and Spanish literature: 'Las ciencias y las letras: Pensamiento tecnocientífico y cultura en España' (Editorial Academia del Hispanismo, 2018). He is part of a research group in Digital Humanities, and participates in a research project on discourses of nature in the twentieth century, where he works on the work of Miguel Delibes.


At Faberllull Olot I will work on the project "Nature and change", a creative essay structured around the life and work of Miguel Delibes. It engages in a constant dialogue with many works, both literary and artistic or cinematographic, and with thought. The essay reviews concepts such as nature, environment, rurality, progress or hunting, among others. The analysis of contemporary cultural production from a transnational and transcultural perspective has a very important weight in the project, but also the relationship of these ideas with the movements in defense of the rural world and nature, and the awareness of climate change.
