Research Profile

Stephen Boyd

Biography

I studied Hispanic Languages and Literature at the University of St Andrews, taking an MA degree there in 1977. In 1978 I came to Cork to take up a temporary full-time Assistant Lectureship in Spanish at UCC. I was made permanent in this post in 1980, promoted to College Lecturer (below the Bar) in 1983 and to College Lecturer (above the Bar) in 1999. I was responsible for the establishment of Catalan Studies as a sub-discipline within the Department in 1980 and, in 1982, of a Lectorat de català subvented by the Generalitat of Catalonia. I am a member of the Association of Hispanists of Great Britain and Ireland, the Asociación de Cervantistas, the Asociación Internacional Siglo de Oro and of the Irish Translators' and Interpreters' Association.  

Research Interests

The literature and visual art of the Spanish Golden Age, especially the works of Cervantes, the poetry of Luis de Góngora and the paintings of El Greco and Velázquez.

Catalan language and literature of all periods
