I am a doctoral student at King’s College, Cambridge, where I am researching with the support of the ARHC how memory was theorized and practiced in early modern Spanish literature and culture from a multidisciplinary perspective, combining the insights afforded by Literary Historiography and Criticism, the History of Rhetoric, the History of Ideas, and Cognitive Literary Studies. My supervisor is Prof Rodrigo Cacho. I obtained my undergraduate degrees in Classics (2019) and Hispanic Philology (2020) from Universidad de Extremadura (Spain), supplemented by a year abroad at the University of Exeter (UK, 2017-2018) and a Teaching Assistantship at Kalamazoo College (US, 2019-2020). Supported by “la Caixa” Foundation, I came to the University of Cambridge in 2020 to pursue a MPhil in ELAC at Queens’ College. I am primarily interested in the intersections between the poetry from the Spanish Siglo de Oro (16th-17th centuries) and early modern theories of cognition. Other research interests include medieval and contemporary Spanish literature; the history of rhetoric and poetics, with an emphasis on the arts of memory; and cognitive approaches to literature focused on embodiment and language. My peer-reviewed work has been published in journals such as Journal for the History of Rhetoric (Taylor & Francis) and Rhetorica (UC Press). Since 2021, I am also the Vice-President of the Asociación ALEPH (Asociación de Jóvenes Investigadores de la Literatura Hispánica) and lead organiser with Sergio Martínez Rey (Stanford University) of its XVIII International Conference, taking place in Cambridge in August 2022.
