The Department of Hispanic Studies was awarded a rating of 5a in the recent HEFCE Research Assessment Exercise. This excellent result reflects the international profile of scholars working in the Department.
Sheffield Hispanists are actively involved in a wide range of research. The published researched output of Hispanic Studies staff includes hundreds of articles and chapters in books, as well as other items.
A collaborative approach
The approach to research in the Department is one of inclusivity. Many of the Departments projects have lead to collaborations with other University departments as well as other universities, both in the UK and overseas.
Our staff and research students have consistently secured awards from prestigious funding bodies in support of conferences and publications, as well as innovative research projects.
Humanities Research Institute
We have very close links with the University of Sheffield´s award-winning Humanities Research Institute, which has provided support for a number of research projects based in Hispanic Studies.
