Dr Claudia Marques-Martin
  • Associate Lecturer (Teaching) in Spanish
  • Faculty of Arts & Humanities
I graduated with First Class Joint Honours with a Master of Arts in French and Hispanic Studies from the University of Aberdeen where I also gained an MLitt in Comparative Literature, funded by the Isabella Middleton Studentship. 

My MLitt dissertation focused on an analysis of the role of politicised femininity in life-writing and the confrontation between conservative and Fascist forces versus a Republican democracy. I developed a comparative study between the main right-wing female figures who collaborated with the Nazi during the Second World War in France and with Franco during the Spanish Civil War.

In 2008 I became registered with the General Teaching Council for Scotland and, in 2014, I was recognised by the HEA as a Fellow. 

In 2017 I received my AHRC-funded doctorate in Hispanic Studies with my PhD Shaping the Francoist Female Body Politic: Female Right-Wing Writers at the University of Aberdeen. I am currently working on a Monograph based on my doctoral research.

Research Summary
My research takes an interdisciplinary approach to scholarship on Cultural Studies and Gender Studies. My postgraduate and postdoctoral work has focused on the politicisation, agency, and role of women in the 1930s and 40s in France and Spain, during WWII and the Spanish Civil War respectively, taking a transnational approach to the mutual influence of Fascist ideologies in Europe.

I am also interested in the legacy of the Francoist regime on female agency in contemporary Spain. I am particularly interested in the concepts of Motherhood and Marianism; in the role of Catholicism in shaping the idea of Womanhood; in the (Self)-Construction of Female Political Identity; and in Historical Memory.
Teaching Summary
I am an Associate Lecturer currently teaching in the Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies Programme and collaborating with the Gender and Sexuality Studies Programme.
Before joining UCL in 2020, I lectured at the University of St Andrews on interdisciplinary subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate level such as research-led content modules on 19th and 20th century Spanish and Latin American film and literature; on Historical Memory; on Textual Studies; on Cultural Studies and Gender Studies Theory; and on Comparative Literature. I also taught and coordinated Spanish language modules.
Before then, I had taught French and Spanish language and translation as well as Spanish history at the University of Aberdeen.
