Senior Lecturer in Spanish

Terence McMullan’s teaching interests at undergraduate and postgraduate level include Modern Spanish literature, early 20th century Spanish art, and Spanish cinema. He contributes to the Spanish MA programmes in ‘Hispanic Studies’ and ‘Image and Text’. His research focusses mostly on pre-Civil War Spanish poetry seen in relation to French culture. He also works on the relationship between pictorial imagery and the written word, particularly in connection with the 1927 Generation. A recent research project explores the role of the book trade in facilitating literary and cultural contacts between Paris and Madrid in the 1920s and 30s.
