Program Description:

Research Opportunities Postgraduate students are encouraged to take part in our intellectual activities, including a regular research seminar which meets to discuss papers by research students, staff and visiting scholars. We usually have 12 to 15 PhD students working with us (or pursuing research through one of our graduate exchanges with France). In recent years our postgraduates have organised a national conference. Strong links exist with the Institute of Romance Studies and the Institut Français. Regular research seminars are also held in the College’s central London base in Bedford Square, near Senate House in Bloomsbury. One research group, focused on Autobiography and Life/Writing, has included Philippe Lejeune among recent speakers. Another, on poetry and its relation to other forms of expression, has welcomed a number of well-known poets and critics, while a research cluster based in the visual arts (from surrealist painting to contemporary fi lm and video) has resulted in an ongoing series of talks and events.
