Almudena Gómez-Seoane (known as Almu) has recently joined CLAS as a University Teacher in Spanish.
Almudena completed her BA degree in English Studies at the University of Santiago of Compostela (Spain) where she is currently studying for a PhD in Medieval English Literature. Her research focuses on the subject of Brittany, the legends of King Arthur and the chivalric code. Her thesis examines the importance of the secondary female characters in these legends – an area which, according to Almu, has been sidelined in critical analyses.
Almu has presented her research at several international conferences, giving papers in Spain, the United Kingdom, Romania and France. More recently, she has written a chapter on the importance of the Arthurian world in Galicia, in a forthcoming book on Iberian-Arthurian connections.
