Personal profile


Dr Iona Macintyre is a senior lecturer in Hispanic Studies. After a first degree at the University of Glasgow and completing her PhD at the University of Nottingham, she joined the Department of European Languages and Cultures at Edinburgh in 2007. Her doctoral thesis looked at the woman question in nineteenth-century Argentina.

Research Interests

Her broad research interests are in the writing (including narrative, poetry, and political and historical writing), history, and culture of nineteenth-century Spanish America and Brazil. Within this she works primarily on Argentina, history of the book, gender studies, popular print forms (such as conduct and pamphlet literature), Spanish American independence, and transatlantic relations.

Iona is eager to develop group projects on Latin American topics. As part of the River Plate Research Cluster she has co-organised visits from contemporary Argentinian writers Guillermo Martínez (supported by the Joint Initiative for the Study of Latin America and the Caribbean and the Moray Endowment Fund) and Andrés Neuman (supported by the Society for Latin American Studies). She has recently co-translated the novel 'The Adventures of China Iron' by the acclaimed writer Gabriela Cabezón Cámara.
