Overview

We are one of the longest established and most broadly-based centres for the study of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies in the UK. Research at Liverpool is characterised by wide-ranging interests in the national and global dimensions of Latin American Studies, with a particular emphasis on social science, historical and cultural studies research.

Research activity in Latin American Studies covers a broad geographic area in and is at the forefront of developments in literary, historical, cultural studies, and the social sciences and we are the home to major journals, including the Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, the Bulletin of Contemporary Hispanic Studies, and Modern Languages Open. Our research emphasizes our understanding of ‘Latin American studies’ in the broadest sense, as relating to the multiple geographical and linguistic contexts that make up the Hispanic and Lusophone worlds.

We also work closely with local and regional cultural organizations such as FACT, the National Museums Liverpool, the Tate Gallery and the Bluecoat leading to public events on Latin American digital art, Brazilian popular culture, and Latin American film and literature.

Research themes

Our research themes are:

  • Latin American Cinemas
  • Brazilian Popular Culture and Performance
  • Latin American Literature and Culture
  • Latin American Popular Culture and Memory
  • Digital Cultures in Latin America
  • Latin American Political History; Social Movements and Identity; Memory and Human Rights
  • Violence and its Traumatic Aftermaths in Literature, Film, and Digital Cultures.
