Research interests

Quando às vezes a mim por mim pergunto,
Quem fui responde que me não conhece

[When, at times, I ask myself about myself,
Who I was answers that he does not know me]

Vasco Mousinho de Quevedo CasteloBranco (1596)

Life is, indeed, emblematic.

My research interests are as interdisciplinary as the subjects themselves. Portugal and Spain were a united kingdom form 1580 to 1640, the period when the poet Vasco Mousinho de Quevedo Castelo Branco published all of his work. Admired and vilified in equal measure by Portuguese readers, my work explores his literature from the perspective of a literary canon, patrimonialism, and repercussions - such as emblems. Quevedo was the first author to publish emblems in Portuguese, in Portugal (1596), and my work on emblem studies has sought to shed light on the role of emblems in Portuguese culture in the sixteenth- and seventeenth-centuries.

As Deputy Director of the Stirling Maxwell Centre for the Study of Text/Image Cultures, whose material holdings, via the riches of Glasgow University Library and the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, are unrivalled, I support the study of emblems and their various guises (applied emblems, displayed emblems [Pedro Germano Leal, 2018]).
