Dr Henriette Partzsch
- Senior Lecturer (Hispanic Studies)
Henriette Partzsch's research focusses on Spanish literature and culture, specifically:
- Spanish literature and culture during the long nineteenth century
- Women writers in Spain, with a particular interest in comparative approaches
- Transcultural studies
Henriette Partzsch has lead the HERA funded collaborative research project Travelling Texts, 1790-1914: The Transnational Reception of Women's Writing at the Fringes of Europe (Finland, The Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain) (Sept 2013-Aug 2016). The international project team researched cultural encounters through reading and writing that crossed and often transcended borders of different kinds (nation, gender, class, religion), by finding out and comparing what texts written by women circulated in our fringe countries during the long nineteenth-century, who read them and what readers thought about and did with them. For further information please consult the project website of Travelling Texts.
Henriette Partzsch is happy to consider proposals from research students in her areas of expertise.
She has supervised the thesis Women's Writing Networks in Spanish Magazines around 1900 (2017). She is the main supervisor of the Lord Kelvin / Adam Smith PhD project Connecting Threads: The Transnational Textile Trade between Nineteenth-Century Britain and the Spanish-speaking world (Co-supervisors: Dr Kirsten Kininmonth, Accounting & Finance, and Dr Sally Tuckett, History of Art). She is also part of the supervisory team for an MRes dissertation in the context of the Translating Feminism project.
