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..
