Isabel Torres admitted to British Academy
Isabel Torres, Professor of Spanish Golden Age Literature from the School of Arts, English and Languages, is one of 86 distinguished academics admitted to the British Academy in recognition of her outstanding contribution to research in the humanities and social sciences.
Professor Isabel Torres has an international reputation in Spanish Renaissance (‘Golden Age’) Literary and Cultural Studies; her major contribution has been in the field of Renaissance and Baroque poetics. In 2016, she was elected to the Royal Spanish Academy – one of Spain’s highest accolades – in recognition of her outstanding scholarly contribution to Spanish literature.
Professor Torres commented: “I am extremely grateful to the British Academy for this honour. I see this not just as a mark of recognition for my own work, but also as an endorsement of all the research carried out across the discipline of Modern Languages. This Fellowship would not have been possible without the support and guidance of my family, friends and so many colleagues. I share this with all of them.”
