PhD - Digital Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies
In conjunction with the Department of Digital Humanities (DDH), we offer a co-supervised doctoral programme in which the student may officially combine digital tools, methods and critical perspectives with literary, editorial, cultural or historical research in any of the areas covered by the Department. Digital work in Spanish and Portuguese has been well established for decades, for example in the design and construction of resources for literary, linguistic and lexicographical research, in stylistic and thematic analysis, authorship attribution and historical studies. It is fair to say that in profound and long-lasting ways, provision of these resources has changed the possibilities for scholarship in our subject areas as in other disciplines. At the same time it has raised problems that remain largely unexamined. There is clearly much work to be done at the doctoral level, and interest in this work from across the disciplines.
The Department of Digital Humanities, institutional collaborator in this PhD programme, is an acclaimed world-leader in the digital humanities, its doctoral programme the first of its kind and its research projects among the best. Students at King’s are uniquely privileged by this collaboration.
