About

Leticia Villamediana González joined Hispanic Studies as a Teaching Fellow in August 2014. Before coming to Warwick she was teaching Spanish at Queen's University, Belfast, where she completed her Doctoral Studies in 2013.

Research and Teaching Interests

Her research interests lie in the fields of 18th-Century Spanish literature, culture and intellectual history; Anglo-Spanish cultural transfers and Spanish periodical press. She is currently working on a monograph based on her doctoral research, which focused on the study of anglomania and anglophobia in the Spanish press and their contribution to Spain’s programme of Enlightenment reform. Leticia is also co-editing a volume on The Configuration of the Spanish Public Sphere: from the Enlightenment to the indignados (Berghahn Books).

She is also interested in Digital Humanities and Culture, Spanish Language Learning and Teaching and E-learning.

She is currently collaborating with Ms. Raquel Navas on a pedagogical project which explores the Spanish Linguistic Landscape in the UK.

Leticia is also a team member of the WIHEA funded project Open Educational Practice. KNOWHOW-Knowledge in the Open Web.

Her teaching interests lie in Spanish history and literature of the long-18th century and socio-political journalism. She was awarded the 2017 BSECS Teaching Prize for 'Images and Representations of 18th-Century Spain', her contribution to the first-year module 'Images and Representations of the Hispanic World'. She also teaches advanced Spanish language modules and she convenes the first-year module 'Modern Spanish Language I (Advanced)'.
