Professor Sanabria is particularly interested in the political and cultural history of fin-de-siecle Spain. His UC San Diego dissertation, which he revised for publication, focused attention on the conflation of nationalism, anticlerical, and republicanism during the Spanish Restoration, 1875-1912. Professor Sanabria is also interested in the history of sports and leisure, especially soccer, over the course of the twentieth century, and the history of Spain's Second Republic (1931-1936), and the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939).
