Course Summary

One of the University's larger modern language subject areas, German has earned its place as a significant centre for research, with half of our research ranked as internationally excellent or world leading in the latest Research Assessment Exercise. The size of our graduate school means we are able to support a broad range of German and Austrian cultural and literary research themes, from the medieval period to the present.

Current interests include: 18th century and Romanticism studies; censorship studies; contemporary German literature; cultural and political studies and literary theory; gender studies; German and Austrian Jewish literature; identity studies; literature and culture of the German/Austrian fin-de-siècle; literature and culture of the Weimar Republic and the National Socialist era; migrant literature in German; palaeography and Medieval textual studies; post-Holocaust literature; post-war West and East German literary and cultural studies; the Medieval German epic; theatre and performance studies; travel writing; Turkish-German literature.
