Dr Tristan Kay


I grew up in the North West of England and studied Italian and Spanish as an undergraduate at the University of Leeds (BA, 2005), where I remained to complete an MA by Research on Dante and the troubadours (2006). In 2006 I began a doctorate at the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Manuele Gragnolati, writing a thesis on the relationship between eros, spirituality and vernacular language in Dante. Before coming to Bristol in 2012, I held a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship at Dartmouth College, USA, where I taught courses on medieval and modern Italian culture. I am an Associate Editor of the journal Italian Studies and am also Admissions Tutor for the School of Modern Languages.
