Dr Eamon McCarthy
- Lecturer (Hispanic Studies)
My research interests coalesce around questions of gender and sexuality, with a particular focus on Argentine visual culture. I have published on the Borges siblings and have been invited to speak on my work in the UK, Spain and Argentina. I have recently completed a monograph dedicated to Norah Borges. I am continuing my work related to women arts and am also currently working on queer Argentine fiction.
I am also secretary of the Society for Latin American Studies.
I am happy to supervise students in any of the following areas:
- Twentieth Century Hispanic Women Artists
- Latin American Literature (particularly Southern Cone)
- Gender & Sexuality Studies
- Latin American Cinema (particularly Argentina)
- The historical avant-garde in Spain and Latin America
- The influence of European culture in Argentina
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. In 2016 I won both a College Teaching Award and an SRC Student Teaching Award (in the category of Best Dissertation Supervisor).
I am currently the College Quality Officer, UG Language Co-ordinator for the school, and have previously taken a leading role in schools liaison and student recruitment.
