Course summary

Our PhD Portuguese 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.

The PhD is the major postgraduate research degree. It involves three years of full-time study or six years of part-time study and the preparation of a thesis of not more than 80,000 words that makes a significant contribution to knowledge. A satisfactory PhD topic is one that a suitably qualified and properly supervised student can bring to completion within the permitted timeframe. Your research will normally be supervised by two members of staff at the University. Your supervisors will most likely be members of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, but if your research requires it, we may arrange for supervision by someone outside the School. Research panels (consisting of at least three academic staff, including the supervisors) are held once per semester to monitor progress.
