    Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies
    The Department offers supervision at postgraduate level in most areas of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies including literature, art, history, film, popular culture, and social and historical studies. We are keen to expand our postgraduate numbers and applications for research at this level are welcomed.

    The University’s libraries have excellent holdings of primary and secondary materials in a wide range of subject areas and this has been reflected in the research topics of our recent students. In addition, there is a strong research culture within the Department, with regular visiting speakers, including those invited by the Instituto Cervantes.

    Current staff research interests include Modernism and contemporary Spanish narrative, Galdós, twentieth-century Spanish poetry and theatre, Brazilian popular culture (music and film), modern Portuguese prose fiction, Spanish and Latin American social and political history, Spanish film, and Latin American literature and film. The Department may be able to offer studentships to suitably qualified candidates. Successful candidates would be expected to register for a doctorate and to undertake a limited amount of teaching. The value of a bursary is equivalent to an AHRB award.

    What you study
    The MA programme draws directly on the research interests of members of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, which range from Mexican and Spanish history, from the Spanish-speaking Sahara to Portuguese writing, and from postcolonial studies to the history of sexuality in Spain.

    The combination and comparison of core concepts such as ‘identity’ and ‘race’ across the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds are designed to provide in-depth, thought-provoking and exciting topics for study, and the comparative and multi-disciplinary approach is a core aspect of this programme
