Llegada á Popayán (1884)

There are two full Latin American modules, and one Early Modern Iberian and Latin American module, available within the MPhil (Masters) in European, Latin American, and Comparative Literatures and Cultures (ELAC). One of these is also available within the MPhil in Film and Screen Studies. You can also undertake a PhD in any area of Latin American Cultural Studies within the Department of Spanish and Portuguese as part of the Latin American Cultural Studies Consortium.

MPhil (Masters) Study

The available MPhil modules are:

  • Latin American Film and Visual Arts (available for ELAC and Film Studies)
  • Latin American Literary Culture (available within ELAC) and
  • Myth and Invention: Medieval and Early Modern Iberian and Latin American Culture (available within ELAC)

 

Full information about the first two of these modules is available on the website of the Centre of Latin American Studies (see links below), but please note that you can take both modules within the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages because they are full "native" modules of the ELAC MPhil, and do not count as borrowed modules. Information about the Ibero-American Literature module (including Brazilian literature) is available from ELAC pages (link below). You can of course also combine either with any of the other available modules from the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, or within the Faculty more broadly.

PhD Study

We also welcome enquiries from those interested in undertaking a PhD in any area of Latin American Cultural Studies. All students will study under the umbrella of the Latin American Cultural Studies Consortium, which is made up of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and the Centre of Latin American Studies. You would become a member of both Departments and would have access to all of the facilites offered by both of these institutions. You should identify a member of staff with whom you would like to work and make initial contact by email, describing your educational background, your research interests and an initial idea of the project you wish to undertake. If you are unsure whom to approach, you may seek advice from any of the Latin Americanists who teach for the Department: Steven Boldy, Geoffrey Kantaris, Rory O'Bryen, Joanna Page, Erica Segre or the Head of Department, Brad Epps.
