Guinevere Allen

Ph.D. Candidate in Iberian and Latin American Cultures

Guinevere completed her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Literature at the University of California, Berkeley in 2010. She was the recipient of the Cervantes Prize for Literary Excellence, the John Walsh Award for Academic Excellence, and the Una Fellowship of History for Ph.D. research in the area of medieval Iberian studies. She is currently a Ph.D. student at Stanford University in the Department of Iberian and Latin American Cultures. Her recent invited lectures at Stanford have covered the topics of the medieval Iberian lyric of the kharja and cantigas d’amigo and the court lyric of las Cantigas de Santa Maria during the reign of Alfonso X. Her publications include: Alfonso X and the Jews: An Edition of and Commentary on Siete Partidas 7.24 “De los judios” and La metáfora semítica en los cantares de Salomón. Her current research focus is on developing a theory of hermeneutics that accounts for prosody in the dialogic metrics of medieval song book codices and early modern baroque aesthetics.
