Fusi, currently Professor of History at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, where he has held the Chair of Contemporary History since 1988, has devoted a large part of his career teaching at universities in Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
He has been a lecturer at Colegio Universitario San Pablo-CEU and professor at universities in Murcia, Cantabria and the Basque Country.

Appointments [ edit ]
Between 1986 and 1990, Fusi was the Director of the Biblioteca Nacional de España, and is still a member of its board of trustees. He has been the Academic Director at the Instituto Universitario de Investigación Ortega y Gasset and at the Fundación José Ortega y Gasset (2001–2006), where he is still a trustee and Emeritus Fellow.
Committee of Experts [ edit ]
Fusi was a member of the ad hoc committee of experts set up to advise the Spanish government regarding the return of the polemical "Salamanca Papers" to the autonomous government of Catalonia. Comprising, among others, Federico Mayor Zaragoza and Columbia University Professor of History Edward Malefakis, the committee declared in 2004, by a majority of 14 of its 17 members, that it was "just and legitimate" that the documents be returned to the autonomous government. The documents were finally transferred in 2005.
