Dr Jonathan Bradbury


I did my undergraduate degree in Modern Languages (Spanish and Italian) at Pembroke College, Oxford between 2001-2005, spending my Year Abroad (2003-2004) in Siena and Barcelona. I moved to Trinity Hall, Cambridge in 2006, completing an MPhil in 2007; for this degree, I worked on topics in the fields of Intellectual History, History of the Book, and Translation Theory, concentrating in particular on the early-modern period in Spain and Italy. In 2007, I transferred to St John's College, Cambridge, where I was awarded a PhD in February 2012 for a thesis written under the supervision of Dr Rodrigo Cacho Casal (Clare College, Cambridge) on the tradition of the Spanish vernacular prose miscellany between 1540-1673, with a detailed case-study of the miscellanies of Cristóbal Suárez de Figueroa (1571?-1644?)

During the final four terms of my doctoral work, I was the Spanish lecturer at St Catherine's College, Oxford, and between 2011-2014 I was a Junior Research Fellow at Christ Church, Oxford.

I began teaching in Exeter in 2013-14, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2018.
