German, Hispanic Studies, and Italian – ensures a dynamic research community,
covering all the major aspects of European literature and culture.
We host the Centre for Modern European Literature, which provides an active programme of events. Our staff participate in a number of research centres across the University.
All of our subject areas offer research programmes at doctoral level.
