James’ fascination with Spanish began in childhood with time spent with his Castilian Spanish grandmother and it has been a central element of his life ever since. James was previously a practicing immigration attorney but returned to academia to pursue his passion for the Spanish language.

James’ interests include the presence of ethnic Greeks within the Late Medieval and Early Modern Hispanic world, Hispano-Muslim and Sephardic diaspora communities in the broader Mediterranean cultural region, and religious syncretism among indigenous and mestizo Andean societies.
