Professor María Morrás, established at the Humanities Department of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) is interested in receiving Expressions of Interest of potential candidates for the Marie Sklodowska - Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA - IF) 2018 call.
Prof. Morrás' research interests focus on Iberian Middle Ages, from the reception of Classical tradition and the introduction of Humanism in 15th century Spain to cancionero poetry, with incursions in Golden Age theatre.

Her current research deals on forms of female sanctity and its relation to political power. She has published also over 60 articles on textual criticism, Humanism, translations in the Middle Ages, wisdom literature, female sainthood and digital humanities in national and international journals. Currently Prof Morrás is the PI of a Project on 'Gender, Spirituality and Power: the emergency of Female Authority at court and convent in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Spain', integrated by an international team of 13 researchers, one of them a MSCA fellowship.
