Manuel Parada López de Corselas (Madrid, 1986) graduated in Art History and completed a MA in Spanish Art History at the Complutense University in Madrid. He acquired a PhD in Art History at the University of Bologna (Italy) –as member of the Royal Spanish College– and a PhD in Archaeology at the ICAC-URV (Spain) with honors. He has also researched at the La Sapienza University of Rome, the INHA (France) and the IIE at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), he teaches at the Intergenerational Program at the Complutense University and collaborates with the Prado Museum in the studies about Jan van Eyck and Spain.

He directed the congresses “Universitas from the Mediterranean to the Pacific: Hegemonies, Plurality and Syncretism in the Art of the Hispanic World during the 15th and 16th Centuries” (Rome, 2017), “Domus Hispanica: the Royal Spanish College in the Art History (1364-2014)” (Bologna, 2015) and “The Empire and the Hispanias from Trajan to Charles V. Clasicism and Power in Spanish Art” (Bologna, 2013) and curated the exhibition “Francisco de Holanda (1517-1584) in his Fifth Centennial. Initiatory Journey through the Avant-garde of the Renaissance” (Madrid, 2017).

His current Fulbright research project as a Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar at the Department of History of Art & Architecture at Harvard University is entitled “Jan van Eyck, Castile and the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada: Politics, Arts and Trans-cultural Relationships in 15th Century Europe during the Early Globalization”. The transcultural studies and the entangled histories around Jan van Eyck have become the cornerstone of his most recent publications and research line.
