The Centre helps to promote research and disseminate knowledge within the University of Leeds, across the wider academic community and to the general public. It does so by collaborating with national and international partners on research, teaching, public engagement and impact activities. Each year it holds an annual lecture, a seminar series, a symposium and a postgraduate showcase. It works closely with the Instituto Cervantes to bring events to the general public and regularly hosts speakers from Spain and other countries. Confirmed speakers for the academic year 2017-2018 include Adrian Shubert (Professor of History at York University, Toronto), William Chislett (former correspondent of The Times in Madrid) and Giles Tremlett (journalist with The Guardian, author and historian).
The Centre welcomes applications from prospective visiting scholars and PhD. students.
