Course summary

Programme description

Our PhD Latin American Cultural Studies programme will enable you to carry out a piece of significant, original research under the supervision of our academics.

Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at Manchester plays key roles in national and international research contexts through our publications, seminar and conference activity, and our innovative approach to the configuration of the discipline boundaries in which we work.

Our research and postgraduate teaching ranges chronologically from the Early Modern period in Spain and Latin America up to the present day (for example, with work on the modern city in Latin America, on race and indigenous cultures, contemporary Spanish and Portuguese literature, film and music, and 20th and 21st-century Latin American literature, photography and comics).

Our publications and supervisory interests include cultural and literary history and theory, music, history, and urban culture.

We have expertise in Brazilian/Portuguese Studies, Cultural and Gender Studies, Film Studies, History, Literature, Art and Culture in Latin America, and Textual Criticism.

In recent years, we have successfully supervised to completion PhD students in subjects covering our whole range, but with a particular clustering around Latin American, Gender, and Cultural/Literary Studies topics.

We run regular research seminar series in Spanish/Portuguese and in Latin American Cultural Studies. Postgraduate students contribute significantly to the running and content of both.

Career opportunities

Many of PhD graduates in Modern Languages and Translation and Interpreting Studies have gone on to academic positions at leading universities in the UK, Europe, USA, East Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Our graduates have been also successful with receiving prestigious postdoctoral fellowships, including the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship and the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship.

The interdisciplinarity nature of PhD programmes in Modern Languages and Cultures and Translation and Interpreting Studies prepares our graduates successfully to apply to a wide range of academic posts. In addition to those in European and Middle Eastern Languages and Translation/Interpreting, our graduates have been appointed to permanent academic positions in Film Studies; History; Journalism and Political Communication; and Sociology.
