Tyler Fisher, DPhil ’02 ’03 supports UCF’s Office of Prestigious Awards, housed in the Burnett Honors College, by preparing students to apply for British and international scholarships. He is also an associate professor in UCF’s Department of Modern Languages and Literatures.

As an undergraduate at UCF (B.A. English; B.A. Spanish), Dr. Fisher flourished in the BHC’s small, intensive classes and lively seminars. He was the first UCF student to attain a Rhodes Scholarship which enabled him to do his master’s and doctoral studies in Medieval and Modern Languages (M.Phil. and D.Phil.) at the University of Oxford. He was subsequently Queen Sofía Research Fellow and Lecturer in Spanish at Exeter College, Oxford, and later held permanent posts at the University of London (Royal Holloway and University College London). His research interests encompass questions of orality, ritual, translation, and the intersections of critical, creative practices; and he has presented research papers by invitation at the universities of Cambridge, Coimbra, Glasgow, Nazarbayev, Santo Domingo, and Ulster. Dr. Fisher’s book-length translations of poetry include José Martí’s Ismaelillo (Wings Press 2007) and Federico García Lorca’s The Dialogue of Two Snails (Penguin 2018).
