University of Bristol

French

The Department of French is committed to research innovation and excellence in major aspects of French studies. The department has particular strengths in the medieval, early modern period, visual-textual relations, 19th-, 20th- and 21st-century literature, screen and stage adaptations, cultural history and politics. We collaborate extensively with other departments, especially in the fields of visual and literary cultures, conflict and culture, medieval studies, English and comparative literature, and the Centre for Postcolonial Studies. Each research student is assigned to an academic who is working in their proposed area of research or related field, and benefits from the input of a second supervisor who may be from another department, depending on the interdisciplinary nature of the project. The department is a regional centre for the Group for War and Culture Studies and members of the department are active in a wide range of Faculty of Arts research clusters. A number of our staff are editors of leading journals and active in subject associations. Postgraduate students can benefit from an exchange agreement with the Ecole Normale Supe´rieure (rue d'Ulm), or take an exchange lecturer post at the Universite´ de Bordeaux III. Research students lead the organisation of a postgraduate seminar series in literary and visual landscapes, and an initiative to edit postgraduate creative writing.
