Rosa María Rodríguez Porto


BA, MA and PhD (Santiago de Compostela)
Postdoctoral research fellow, Centre for Medieval Literature
An art historian by training, Rosa M. Rodríguez Porto has extensively worked on the illuminated books made for the kings and queens of Castile (1284-1369), on medieval Iberian courtly culture and on the Classical tradition in the Middle Ages. Her research project at the Centre for Medieval Literature is focused on the study of Late Medieval Iberian historiographical production, paying special attention to the uses of images in the construction of historical discourse, both in terms of the illustration and layout of the preserved manuscripts and in what concerns the imagery evoked while in reading.
