Víctor Sierra Matute’s research focuses on the intersection of materiality, affect and history the senses in the early modern Iberian world. He has worked for the Department of Incunabula and Rare Books at the National Library of Spain, where he catalogued a significant part of the early modern poetic and theatrical manuscripts. He is currently working on a book-length manuscript provisionally entitled Materia Poetica: The Affective Life of Texts in the Early Modern Iberian World. Preliminary research towards this project has been funded by fellowships and grants from the Huntington Library, the Golden Age International Association, and the Society for Renaissance and Baroque Hispanic Poetry. His papers have appeared in the journals Voz y Letra and Manuscrt.cao, and the companions Biblioteca de Autógrafos Españoles and Memoria manuscrita del Siglo de Oro en la Biblioteca Nacional de España, among others.
