A great deal of our research centres on the nature of connections:
- connections between places
- connections between times
- connections between disciplines.
Global culture and history are fundamental to our work. We research how Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries shaped the world, across Europe, America, Africa and Asia. We ask how they fit into the wider globe. We explore new ways to express those relationships, including through digital humanities.
We welcome applications from students wishing to pursue tailor-made research to master's or doctoral level. All postgraduates participate in a vigorous programme of research events and make key contributions to the research activities of the department, the School of Modern Languages and the faculty.
The majority of graduates from this MPhil in Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at University of Bristol develop careers as academics in higher education, while maintaining the capacity to undertake new and innovative research in the field of Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American studies.

- Bristol is one of the great Atlantic ports, linked historically to the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking worlds. We work on the nature of connections in large international and regional collaborations such as the 19th-century International Hispanists Network; LUDENS (sport and football); Long-18th-century Studies; and the New Woman project. We have ongoing research collaborations with the Universidad Pontificia in Chile and the University of Las Palmas. The Ramon Llull Institute supports our work in Catalan Studies.
- We welcome applicants with cross-disciplinary projects. A high number of our postgraduates are supervised across multiple disciplines (eg education, earth sciences, history of art, translation studies, history).
