Course content

This research degree is ideal if you wish to engage critically with the study of comparative literature - or, indeed, other cultural forms, especially in the area of visual studies - across 2 or more linguistic, regional or national contexts. The focus of research in the Department of Cultures and Languages is on French, German, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish-speaking cultures in a transnational context, and we welcome research proposals that focus comparatively on or across these areas. The Department has great expertise in a wide variety of themes both historically and geographically (in Europe, Japan and the Americas).
