The University of Oxford participates in a research network with the Universidad de Navarra (GRISO, Grupo de Investigación Siglo de Oro), Université Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris III (Centre de Recherche sur l’Espagne des XVIe et XVIIe siècles), and the Universität Münster, on the topic of ‘Autoridad y poder en el Siglo de Oro’. The universities collaborate on a series of colloquia and workshops with the aim of producing a volume of essays at the end of each cycle (2007- 2008). Oxford hosted the second session of the research network in 2007, focusing on the topic of ‘Autoridad y autoría’.
The Centre for Early Modern Studies is host to the largest, most vibrant early modern scholarly community in the world. Based in the Faculty of English but interdisciplinary in its range, the CEMS is built around the activities and interests of faculty members, researchers, and postgraduate students.
The Medieval Hispanic Text and Manuscript Seminar is a joint activity of The Centre for the Study of the Cantigas de Santa Maria and the Magdalen Iberian Medieval Studies Seminar, supported by a grant from the John Fell Fund for the academic years 2009-10 and 2010-11.
The Seminar holds up to five meetings a year on palaeographical and textual aspects of Medieval Spanish, Galician-Portuguese and Catalan texts, making use of the facsimile collection of the Wulstan Library of St Peter’s College, and will organise a Colloquium in July 2011.
