Dr Sanchez took BA, MA and PhD degrees at the University of Leeds. He completed his studies in 2004 with a thesis exploring perceptions of ‘hispanicity’ in Elizabethan and Jacobean literature.
His collaboration in the compilation of the Gibraltar component of the ICE project is essential. His primary role is to guide us in our field-work in Gibraltar. As a Gibraltarian writer and academic, he offers invaluable help in introducing us to the culture and sociolinguistic situation of Gibraltar as well as to the people we need to approach in order to compile the ICE-GBR corpus: speakers, journalists, writers, poets.
