The research interests of French Studies staff cover the areas of history/politics and literature/cultural studies, and have a wide chronological span, ranging from medieval and Renaissance to contemporary culture.
The main focus of the German Studies research is in East German studies, but our staff also have research interests in a range of other areas, including post-war German fiction and lyric poetry and 19th Century German and Austrian drama.
Since its foundation, the Italian Studies research has been multi-disciplinary. It covers not only Italian literature from the Middle Ages to the present, but also film, women's studies, and modern history: together with the university's Department of History, we have the largest group of modern Italian historians in the UK.
