Iberian and Latin American Studies

As people involved in research, our prime concern is with producing top-quality work that in different ways questions the boundaries of the disciplines we work in and seeks to bring new materials, theories and methods into them. The research programme in Iberian and Latin American studies is both exciting and innovative.

Course modules

The expertise of staff ranges across the field - from Golden Age art to Luso-Brazilian imperial history and culture and the colonial literatures and cultures of Spanish America; from contemporary Spanish and Portuguese cinema and urban studies to Latin American literature, poetry, cinema and museum studies - and the research published by both staff and students is also ground-breaking.

Assessment methods

Apart from the process of research supervision and the final examination of the thesis, each student has an annual review in which their progress is assessed. At an appropriate stage in their research, and in consultation with their supervisor, students are interviewed with a view to upgrading from MPhil to PhD. The PhD is usually 3-4 years of full-time study or 5-7 years of part-time study.

Sponsorship information

Our School attracts funding for studentships that ensure researchers of the highest standard can pursue their research with us. We offer a range of funding opportunities for 2017-2018 entry.
