Staff in the School, who all contribute to the teaching in one of the four language areas in which we offer degree-level studies or to our interdisciplinary courses in Comparative Literature and Culture and Film Studies, are also active researchers with national and international reputations.
Recent publications, all produced in a research environment that encourages collaboration and exchange across traditional disciplinary boundaries, have included numerous original monographs, groundbreaking biographies, widely disseminated articles in peer-reviewed journals, edited and co-edited volumes and yearbooks, and accessible introductions to key fields of study.
Our research encompasses areas as varied as literary studies and critical theory, film, cultural history, philosophy. We are active in national and international subject associations and learned societies, and frequently speak at, contribute to and help to organise seminars, academic conferences and public symposia around the world.
We are proud of our record in recruiting and supporting postgraduate researchers at both Masters (MA by Research) and doctoral level, and welcome applications and expressions of interest at any time.
