French

The French Department at Aberdeen provides a stimulating and supportive research environment within a very dynamic and friendly Department, with a track record of excellence in research and a broad experience of postgraduate supervision. We offer a wide range of specialisation for postgraduate research, leading to the degrees of MLitt and PhD. All full-time staff are active in research and research-led teaching. Main areas of research strength include: Modern literature and thought (Christopher Fynsk, Nadia Kiwan); comparative literature (Christopher Fynsk); contemporary french politics and society (Nadia Kiwan); francophone literature and film (Nadia Kiwan); mediaeval studies (Glynn Hesketh); French poetry (Clémence O'Connor), French cinema(Ed Welch), 17th and 18th French literature (Bruno Tribout) and French novel from 19th - 21st century (Aine Larkin). We also welcome interdisciplinary research involving more than one Department; recent postgraduates have, for example, worked on topics combining French with philosophy, English, film and history of art. There are important interdisciplinary research fora within the College of Arts and Social Sciences which are open to postgraduate students, as well as to staff.
