Research

Students also profit from the broad range of research interests pursued by members of the department: Our fields of research in literary and cultural studies include all epochs of British and American literature and culture as well as most other English-speaking cultures; our linguists are working on varieties of English around the world as well as the history of the English language, while our colleagues in applied linguistics and EFL methodology focus on current methods in foreign-language teaching including the use of new media. A number of these research interests are pursued in interdisciplinary and international projects with other academic institutions. Our research thus contributes to a deeper understanding of the role of Anglophone societies and cultures on a global scale.
