After an undergraduate degree in post-colonial literature at the University of Kent at Canterbury and an MA in Latin American Studies at Sheffield, Pascale completed her PhD at the University of Sheffield in 2011 with a thesis on the representation of bandits and banditry in Latin America.

Pascale’s modules

Hispanic Cultures & Societies

This module introduces students to the study of Spanish society and culture through enquiry-based learning, a student-centred approach that focuses on the acquisition and development of independence of thought, the use and application of research skills, and a focus on excellent presentation skills (oral and written) both on an individual level and in the context of group work.
