Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

I am very happy to discuss any research topics around my areas of research interests, and I would particularly welcome topics connected with the Spanish Golden Age, especially the works of Cervantes, Góngora, Calderón, Zayas, and Gracián.

Personal profile

Research Interests

My published and ongoing research covers various aspects of Spanish and European Baroque culture:

1. Spanish Golden Age art and literature (poetry, prose and drama), with a particular interest in Luis de Góngora, Baltasar Gracián, Pedro Calderón de la Barca and Diego Velázquez.

2. Court culture under Philip IV (1621-65) and Charles II (1665-1700) of Spain.

3. Early modern moral and political philosophy, with a primary focus on Neostoicism and scepticism and their cultural and intellectual impact, especially in the Spanish-speaking world.

4. Court drama and scenography in Baroque Europe.

5. Early modern Jesuits (especially Loyola, Ribadeneira, Gracián).

6. European Baroque quadratura (with a focus on Angelo Michele Colonna and Agostino Mitelli and on Andrea Pozzo) and the use of space in art, architecture and stage design.

7. The Flemish artist Daniel Seghers.
