Applications are invited for up to two E. Allison Peers Masters Scholarships in Iberian and Latin American Studies, to begin in September 2024.


The Scholarship covers fees plus a £5,000 stipend, for students undertaking a Hispanic topic in any Masters programme in the Department of Languages, Cultures and Film at the University of Liverpool.

Subject Areas

We welcome applications from students wishing to undertake research in any one or more of Basque Studies, Catalan Studies, Galician Studies, Portuguese Studies (Brazilian and European), Spanish Studies and Latin American Studies. We especially encourage applications that are comparative or relational, and which cross languages and national borders. Possible focuses for study include: sociolinguistics, translation studies, cultural politics and the politics of culture; popular culture; visual culture; literary studies; film studies; digital culture; gender and sexuality; transnational, postnational and postcolonial studies; migration and diaspora; memory and representation.

Selection Process

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of demonstrated academic excellence. Applicants are required to make contact with a potential supervisor for assistance in formulating a research proposal. Please see research specialisms on our LCF staff pages.  Applicants for an E.
