Hispanic studies 

Our research

Our research in Hispanic Studies at Exeter is outward-looking, with significant and evolving national and international links. We are engaged in collaborative projects, involving colleagues from other UK and Spanish universities.

Research interests

  • 20th Century Spanish women’s writing
  • Spanish Cinema
  • Spanish Modernist fiction
  • Spanish Romanticism
  • The environment in Latin America
  • The recovery of historical memory in Spain

A multi-disciplinary project on the environment in Latin America, hosted by Exeter, is beginning in 2010-2011.

Dr Nuria Capdevila-Argüelles works closely with a Research Assistant, Dr Laura Burgos-Lejonagoitia; their bid for funding of research on Spanish women’s writing was ranked first in an open competition administered by the Basque Regional Government.

Professor Sally Faulkner has been awarded an Arts and Humanities Research Council Fellowship to further her research on Spanish cinema over 2011.
