Course content

French and Francophone Studies forms part of the Modern Languages Core Disciplinary Research Group (CDRG) which provides a vibrant, award-winning environment for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship. Recognised as a centre of excellence for research into the languages, literatures, histories, and cultural identities of the French-speaking world, the research culture of the CDRG is dynamic, forward-looking and inclusive, offering a strong sense of community.

Established research strengths in French include nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century literature and culture, linguistics (sociolinguistics, variation, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis), visual cultures, medical humanities, popular culture, postcolonial writing and Franco-Chinese writing.
