French and Francophone research opportunities


We pursue high-quality, interdisciplinary research across the range of French studies and French and Francophone literature; French history, politics and society; French thought and critical theory; feminist and gender studies; francophone and postcolonial studies; cinema and the visual arts; linguistics and translation studies.

Our research was ranked 5th in the UK in the latest Research Exercise Framework (REF 2014) for "Research Power". We organise major research conferences both at home and internationally and we publish the journal, Nottingham French Studies, founded in 1961.
