Dr Santiago Bertrán
Stipendiary Lecturer in Spanish
After taking my undergraduate degree in Filología hispánica at the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, I moved to the United Kingdom in 2012, following an appointment as a tutor in Spanish at the University of Edinburgh. There, I began an MSc by Research and then a PhD in Hispanic Studies, with a thesis on vision in the novels of contemporary Spanish writer Javier Marías, approached through the lens of philosophers José Ortega y Gasset and Julián Marías, the novelist’s father. Since January 2019 I have been working as a Lecturer at the University of Oxford, first at Exeter College and Keble College, and now at The Queen’s College and Keble College.
