Research undertaken in the Faculty

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese aims to foster active research in literature, linguistics and culture across the fields in which it has specialist researchers: Medieval Spanish; Golden Age; 19th- and 20th-century Spain (including Catalan studies); 19th-and 20th-century Spanish American; Portugal, Brazil and Lusophone Africa; and Hispanic linguistics. As well as traditional subject specialisms, there are clusters of research interest in specific areas: diachronic syntax, cinema, gender studies, cultural studies informed by critical theory, and visual culture.
