João Pedro Vicente Faustino, PhD Student

PhD Student in Hispanic Studies

Humanities Building, University Road, University of Warwick, Coventry CV4 7AL


I completed a degree in Modern Languages and Literature, specializing in Portuguese and English studies, at the University of Lisbon, where I also completed a degree in Language and Literature teaching. My current research project focuses on the representation of modern and late modern subjectivity in the work of Portuguese contemporary novelist Mário Cláudio. Among the issues considered are those of national and transnational migration, social acceleration, memory and expression in Cláudio's fiction. I taught Portuguese language and literature at the universities of Delhi, Granada, Toronto and Warwick.
