Internationally significant, cutting-edge research into the cultures and histories of the Hispanic world
We offer a boundary-crossing, transnational vision of the networks of cultural history, memory, literature and identity that crisscross the Hispanic world. Our research ranges across Iberia (Spain, Portugal, Galicia), Africa, the Atlantic and the Caribbean, exploring connections and encounters between Hispanic, Lusophone, Anglophone and Francophone cultures. Current projects underway in the department investigate Cultural Memory in the Hispanic and Lusophone worlds; Caribbean Commemorations of Christopher Columbus; Race and Cultural Politics in the Iberian Atlantic; and 19th-century Anglo-Spanish Connections.
Our programmes offer opportunities to study the Spanish language and Hispanic literatures and cultures to the highest level while developing your communication and research skills, as well as your knowledge of Hispanic culture across the world.
You will be taught by experts in each area of study, with up to 12 hours of lectures, seminars and language classes per week. You will have 3-4 hours of language classes per week, depending on your level of Spanish on entry. In addition, you choose from a series of literature and culture options, in which emphasis is placed on debate, discussion and on the development of critical and evaluative skills.
