Abstract

Abstract:

Gibraltar, the British territory located at the southernmost tip of the Iberian Peninsula, is frequently in the news but often confuses outsiders with its political and cultural complexity. Is it a colony, or is it self-governing? What is its relationship to its much larger neighbour across the border, Spain? Is there a Gibraltarian way of thinking? In this interview the Gibraltarian writer and novelist M. G. Sanchez—who has spent the last twenty years expounding on the contradictions and idiosyncrasies at the heart of modern-day Gibraltarian identity—discusses borders, Brexit, coloniality, and hybridity, as well as his latest novel, Gooseman (2020), and his 2018 travelogue, Bombay Journal.
