Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Cultural Studies
This degree offers the possibility of following advanced study in the histories of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American cultures in the light of contemporary theoretical developments in the fields of literature, cultural studies, cultural geography, film and the history of art and media. You may specialise in either Spain and Portugal or Latin America, as well as in different historical periods and media, or combine interests. Birkbeck is a world-renowned centre of Iberian and Latin American Studies. Our work is distinguished by its innovative character, its engagement with other disciplines and its challenge to received ideas. We are committed to a continual rethinking of the fields we research and the subjects we teach, creatively and critically. We are also known for our unique student population, including a high number of Spanish and Latin American undergraduates and postgraduates. This brings a particular richness and variety of experience and knowledge to our courses and seminars. Our international staff specialise in diverse aspects of cultural history and critique, with a strong emphasis not only on the literary and linguistic but also the audiovisual expression of Latin America and the Iberian peninsula past and present.
The School of Arts offers a number of bursaries for postgraduate students. Spanish Language Learning Scholarships: In collaboration with Fundacion Lengua (http://www.fundacionlengua.com/) a Spanish language school in Valladolid, Spain, we can offer our undergraduate and postgraduate students of Spanish as many as 50 scholarships per year to take a one or two-week language course at the relevant level with Fundacion Lengua in Valladolid. The scholarship course covers the course costs. A registration fee of 85 euros is payable by the student (information valid for 2016). Transportation and room and board expenses are the responsibility of the student. Part-time students who are experiencing financial need may apply for assistance from the Birkbeck Alumni Fund Postgraduate Opportunity Bursary.
