Welcome to the Department of Iberian and Latin American Studies

News and Events


The Department of Iberian & Latin American Studies is historically the merger of the Westfield and Queen Mary Departments, which celebrated the 50th anniversaries of their foundations in 2005 and 2006 respectively and represent a long and eminent academic tradition. We pride ourselves on academic excellence (we were ranked eighth in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise), on imaginative teaching, on friendly and informal staff-student relations and on wide coverage of all the principal areas of Hispanism. We invite you to follow some of the links to the left, which will tell you more about our enthusiasms for teaching and research, and hopefully lead you further into the fascinating world of Iberian and Latin American Studies.
