Lecturer in Spanish (E&S) (Penryn)


Since 2013 I hold a Lectureship in Hispanic Studies in the Department of Modern Languages and I co-ordinate the Evening Language Programme within the university's Foreign Language Centre. I also organise the Spanish DELE Exams since the FLC became an Instituto Cervantes-accredited Exam Centre in 2016.

My main research interest is the learning and teaching of foreign languages and, specially,  I am very enthusiastic about Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) . Additionally, at an institutional level, I am particularly concerned with embedding employability skills and research culture not only at degree level but also in the curriculum of university-wide language programmes.

Within Catalan Studies, my work focuses mainly on Visual and Popular Culture and this has deeply influenced the most successful culturally-related activities I have organised at Exeter so far: a concert on Catalan protest songs and a storytelling event.
