Italian - Research

Course overview
We combine research interest in selected areas of 19th and 20th century Italian culture and literature as well as cutting-edge and innovative expertise in interdisciplinary studies. Today's critical discourse is strongly influenced by Italian thinkers, and we are one of the few centres in Ireland and the UK where you can study their impacts and the effects they have on other disciplines in the Humanities. You will also have the opportunity to participate in our novel approach to language teaching and the application of new technologies (i.e., subtitling) to the study of Italian.
