Amós del Castillo Petidier

Amós del Castillo Petidier is a PhD candidate at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. His research assesses the impact of mega-events in the Europeanisation of Spain, Portugal, and Greece during the 1990s and early 2000s. Specifically, he applies a comparative and transnational approach to evaluate the links between the narratives and the materialisation of the mega-events projects, thus conceiving them as sites of negotiation for the modernisation strategies pursued in Southern Europe. This research combines elements of the history of international relations, urban history, and public diplomacy. He completed a Bachelor’s double degree in Geography & Spatial Planning and History at Universidad de Sevilla. He holds a master’s degree in European Studies from the same university and he received a Fulbright scholarship to study an MA in European and Mediterranean Studies at New York University. Beyond his academic pursuits, Amós is passionate about urbanism, maps, and an eclectic range of music.
