K. Chesterton). A second research focus has been the study of intellectuals and humanists and their cultural activity during the inter-war period. Along this line, she has paid particular attention to the key humanistic figure in the interwar years, Joan Estelrich (journalist, translator, editor, cultural agent), after investigating from his personal archive held at the Biblioteca de Catalunya. Her last publication is an edition of Joan Estelrich and Josep Pla. Periodisme i llibertat: cartes 1920-1950 (Destino, 2022). Most contributions are chronologically settled within the inter-war period. Member of Filocultura, SmartSociety Research Group, La Salle - Universitat Ramon Llull.
