About the Author

Cristina Sánchez-Carretero is a staff researcher at the Institute of Heritage Sciences (Incipit) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. She was awarded a PhD by the University of Pennsylvania for her dissertation on the revitalization of religious practices among Dominican migrant workers in Spain (2002). Her areas of interest are: processes of traditionalisation and heritage formation; the intersection of migration and cultural heritage (in particular, the role of the revitalization of religious practices after migrating); and the role of rituals and expressive culture in contemporary societies. She has published extensively on these topics and has edited the books: Performance, arte verbal y comunicación (2000), with Dorothy Noyes; Holidays, Ritual, Festival, Celebration, and Public Display (2003), with Jack Santino; El Archivo del Duelo (2011); and Grassroots Memorials. The Politics of Memorializing Traumatic Death (Berghahn), co-edited with Peter Jan Margry (2011).
