Postgraduate Research in French Studies

French Studies offers a range of research programs encompassing the study of French and Francophone literature, cinema, history and society. The French language is one of the most widely spoken European languages, while French culture pervades many aspects of daily life. Knowledge of French is a powerful instrument for opening up the wealth of Frenchspeaking cultural groups and for understanding human society more generally.

Academic staff have a wide range of expertise including areas in Medieval French, Literature in French from Africa, the Caribbean, Switzerland and Canada; contemporary French society; French cinema; French syntax, semantics, and pragmatics; French literary theory; and French-speaking cultures other than France. To find out more, see the Department of French Studies Academic Staff page.

Postgraduate research students work on a wide range of topics. For more information, visit the Department of French Studies Postgraduate Research page.
