French language and culture

The research of French language and culture covers three main areas: language, foreign language acquisition, and literature and culture.

  • The linguistic research covers language variation, with a focus on language change, language-change mechanisms and sociolinguistics (variationist and social psychological). 
  • Within foreign language acquisition, the research is concerned with the principles of foreign language  acquisition as well as how students of foreign languages obtain intercultural competencies with the foreign language. 
  • On the cultural and literary side, subjects covered include contemporary and historical French and Francophone literature and culture in a broad sense. The research is particularly concerned with what literaty texts say about their own time and how they are received and used.
