Dr Alba del Pozo García

Profile

I received my PhD in Literary Theory and Comparative Literature by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Before joining Leeds, I taught Spanish at the University of Nottingham and the University of Birmingham. I have also collaborated with the Instituto Cervantes in Leeds both as a language tutor and organising cultural activities. 

My PhD focused on the relationship between sickness, gender and science in Spanish literature from the fin-de-siècle. I have also been part in projects of research projects focusing on female travel writing between Spain, Latin America and the US during the early 20th Century.  I am currently interested the scholarship surrounding teaching Spanish as a foreign language and language learning methodologies. Specifically, I have published works on peer oral assessment, CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) and intercultural skills.
