Course content

Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at Manchester plays key roles in national and international research contexts through its publications, seminar and conference activity, and through its innovative approach to the configuration of the discipline boundaries in which it works. Our research and postgraduate teaching ranges chronologically from the Early Modern period in Spain through nineteenth-century Latin America to the present day (for example, with work on the modern city in Latin America, transnational contemporary cinema in relation to Spain, and twenty first-century migrations). Our publications and supervisory interests range from cultural, linguistic and literary history and theory to language contact and transnational exchange. We have expertise in Brazilian/Portuguese Studies, Cultural and Gender Studies, Film Studies, History, Literature and Culture in Latin America, Linguistics, Sociology, and Textual Criticism.
