Blanca Santos de la Morena

Blanca Santos de la Morena holds a PhD in Hispanic Studies (2017) and a B.A. in Spanish Philology, both from the Autonomous University of Madrid. In 2019 she obtained an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship, developed at the University of Münster. Her principal research interest is the relationship between religion and literature in the Spanish Golden Age. Her doctoral thesis tackled the presence and treatment of religion in Miguel de Cervantes’s literary production, while her project as a Humboldt Fellow was focused on the construction of the identity in the work of this author. In parallel, she has also studied Lope de Vega’s literary career, with numerous articles about his dramatic works while also attending to his prose and poetry. To a lesser extent, she has also addressed the poetry of San Juan de la Cruz and the pastoral novel. Presently, Blanca Santos de la Morena is a postdoctoral researcher at the University Complutense of Madrid, in the frame of the project “Catálogo de Santas Vivas (1400-1550): Hacia un corpus completo de un modelo hagiográfico femenino”. She is the coordinator of the Database.
