About

Welcome to our Department! The Department of Germanic Studies is one of the largest and most diverse departments in the country, combining traditional coverage and breadth with new interdisciplinary and theoretical approaches. 

Overview

You will be taught and mentored by a world-class faculty distinguished by its interdisciplinary and transnational engagements. Our students and faculty question inherited norms and design new research paradigms in cultural studies, linguistics, literary studies, and fields related to teaching and learning.The UT program encourages students to design their own, innovative professional profiles and to develop their own distinctive voices as future leaders in their fields. UT graduates have an excellent placement record in positions that suit their talents and interests, both inside and outside of traditional academic careers.Many of our graduates have also become leaders in related fields, bringing the humanities into related contexts.The program's PhD dissertations and MA reports document its commitment to innovative, often interdisciplinary or transcultural work spanning various languages and cultures of Northern and Central Europe and their contact zones in the EU and beyond.  Recent projects have addressed many cutting edge trends, beyond traditional scholarship in cultural studies and linguistics:

  • identity politics established by language, media, and cultural practices;
  • effects of contact zones, borders, exile, and migration on language and culture;
