We are a diverse and flourishing multi-lingual community of academics across the School’s disciplines: Chinese Studies, English as an International Language, French Studies, German Studies, Indonesian Studies, Italian Studies, Japanese Studies, Korean Studies, Linguistics, Literary Studies & Creative Writing, Spanish and Latin American Studies, Translation & Interpretation Studies, and Ukrainian Studies.
Our research strengths and interests cover several traditional disciplines, such as Linguistics and History, but a hallmark of our research profile is its interdisciplinary nature, combining traditional disciplines with deep knowledge regarding all aspects of the target culture or literary tradition. Our publications are spread across a wide variety of engaging topics and are featured in national and international outlets in a variety of languages, giving our intellectual impact a global reach.
Each year, we offer a dynamic program of conferences, seminars, workshops and other research events. We host many visiting scholars and our School is home to a thriving graduate research community.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you wish to explore possibilities of research collaboration or to apply for further studies in our School.
