Mr Paul Merchant

Biography

I joined the Department of Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies in 2017, after completing a PhD at the University of Cambridge. My doctoral thesis, 'New Constructions of House and Home in Contemporary Argentine and Chilean Cinema (2005-2015)', explored the political potential of domestic space in recent filmmaking. I also completed Bachelor's and Master's degrees at Cambridge, writing my MPhil dissertation on the fragmentary imagery of the body in the works of Roberto Bolaño.
