Research in Spanish and Latin American Studies

Staff in Spanish and Latin American Studies conduct research on topics related to the cultural production of (and about) Spain, the Spanish-speaking countries of Latin America and Brazil. Special prominence is given to research on Brazil, Catalonia, and Cuba.

Our research focuses on 20th and 21st Century cultural production, with a strong emphasis on the following four areas: Identities (including race and gender identity, and nationalism); historical memory; tradition and modernity; and multiculturalism. Our innovative research connects Spanish and Latin American Studies to the important debates and issues in the Humanities and Social Sciences globally.

Research carried out by staff in Spanish and Latin American Studies contributes to the Faculty of Arts Priority area “Understanding Cultures”. For more information, see staff pages at http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/spanish-latin-american-studies/category/our-staff/
