Studies in Culture

“Through the scholarly analysis of diverse cultural products, texts and phenomena, Studies in Culture brings together researchers who seek to explore how the world is understood differently by people coming from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Researchers in this cluster work on literature, film, music, theatre, the visual arts, intangible heritage, testimonies and historical narratives.

Research in Studies in Culture within the School centres around four broad sub-themes of heritage, memory and trauma studies; intellectual and cultural history; literature; and, film and visual cultures.

These complex and diverse themes embrace the School’s recognised strength in world literatures and cultures. We have expertise in French, German, Russian, Indonesian, Japanese, Chinese and Spanish and Latin American Studies.”
