Accepting Postgraduate Research Students

Personal profile


Dr Lennon joined St Andrews in 2017, having previously worked at Cambridge and Exeter universities. He received his LLB from the University of Edinburgh, MPhil and PhD from the University of Cambridge, and is a Fellow of Advance HE and the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.

Research overview

Dr Lennon specialises in the Early Modern period with a focus on Hispanic literature and culture and the influences that helped shape it, particularly those of Renaissance Italy. His main areas of investigation include syncretism, classical reception, and gender. 

He would be interested to hear from potential graduate students keen to explore Early Modern Hispanic literature and culture, whether exclusively or comparatively, especially those who may wish to focus on poetry.

Currently, Dr Lennon co-supervises Emma Mavin's SGSAH-funded PhD project at the University of Edinburgh on suffering in San Juan de la Cruz.
