Program Description:

Our current PhD students are working mainly in the areas of literary studies, from the Early Modern period to the present day, Comparative Literature (with a European and/or theoretical focus), literary theory, historical and contemporary linguistics, and the history of ideas, but the department has internationally recognised strengths in many other areas. Applications are also invited from students wishing to pursue doctoral research on German history and contemporary politics and culture. The department provides an important focus for research on the Imperial Constitution, the Weimar Constitution, the Basic Law of the Federal Republic, and other relevant legal-political issues. Research in German Linguistics can be conducted at MA, MPhil or PhD level.
