Our multi-disciplinary research in modern languages (French, Spanish, Italian and Mandarin) investigates questions of representations, interpretations and transmissions in film, fiction, journalism, opera, print media, theatre, philosophy and translation.
Our main areas of research include:
- literature and intellectual history
- exile, trauma and wellbeing
- women writers, performers and audiences
- translating people, cultures and heritages
Within these, we have ongoing research projects which involve working closely with a range of external partners.
We offer a wide range of PhD opportunities in modern languages. Discover more about our postgraduate research opportunities.
