Project Description

This PhD project with Dr. Lorraine Ryan may examine the representation of memory in five novels by Javier Cercas: Soldados de Salamina, La velocidad de la luz, Anatomía de un instante, Las leyes de la frontera and El impostor, or the completed Works of Rafael Chirbes/ Antonio Muñoz Molina, or Javier Marías. Students may also focus on gendered memory in the works of Almudena Grandes and Dulce Chacón. This list is by no means exhaustive, and students are encouraged to contact me to discuss PhDs on other authors.
