Leticia Villamediana González

Senior Teaching Fellow, PhD. School of Modern Languages and Cultures; University of Warwick, UK

My research interests lie in the fields of 18th-Century Spanish literature, culture, and intellectual history; Anglo-Spanish cultural transfers and Spanish periodical press. My recent monograph Anglomanía: la imagen de Inglaterra en la prensa española del siglo XVIII (Woodbridge: Tamesis Books, 2019) explores the notion of anglomania and its reactive phenomenon, anglophobia, offering a contextualised analysis of the transmission, reception and adaptation of British Enlightened ideas and reforms in three different types of Spanish periodicals. I have also recently co-edited a volume on The Configuration of the Spanish Public Sphere: from the Enlightenment to the indignados (New York-Oxford: Berghahn Books, 2019). I contribute to the Year’s Work in Modern Language Studies, reviewing the section of Spanish Studies: Literature, 1700-1823.
