Staff in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (MLaC) carry out research in a wide range of specialist areas.
Research in the School is informed by a variety of methodological and theoretical approaches and focuses on the transnational and transcultural study of literatures, cultures and histories through different media.
Three areas of particular strength characterize our research activities:
Further strong research interests include 19th to 21st century literature and culture, Textual scholarship, Gender and sexuality studies, Critical and cultural theory, Travel literature, Creative writing, and Translation. We welcome applications for postgraduate study in the School's Subject Areas, Research Centres and in additional emerging fields represented by the School's Research Groups. The School hosts and is a partner in major research projects and welcomes applications to its Visiting Scholars Programme in collaboration with Durham University's Research Institutes and Centres.
