We are one of the largest Schools of Modern Languages in the UK.  We are engaged in world-leading and agenda-setting research in European literature, culture, intellectual history and film (French, German, Italian, Spanish, Galician, Catalan, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Czech), with several areas that have a more global reach (Chinese, Latin American, Francophone African and Caribbean).  Our research is increasingly collaborative and interdisciplinary in focus, with existing and emerging strengths in Text/Image studies, Gender History, Postcolonial Studies, Comparative Literature, Translation Studies, Medical Humanities and Multilingualism.
