University Research Studentship

Title: The Challenge to Generic Boundaries in Contemporary French Cultural

Directors of Studies: Dr. Sarah Capitanio
Dr. Glyn Hambrook


Most studies into the area of genre have hitherto been largely theoretical
in nature. It is proposed that this research project would explore ways of
exploiting the skills-based and transgeneric modules which form the
provision of French Cultural Studies in the School of Languages and European
Studies. There are ten such modules at undergraduate level and two at
postgraduate level.

The research undertaken will be related to genre (i.e. poetry, theatre,
written and visual forms of narrative, including cinema and certain forms of
mass-media) in French literature and culture of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Applicants should be prepared to pursue transgeneric research (in terms of
themes and codes which cross generic boundaries), taking as a case study two
traditionally distinct genres and examining the various ways in which the
notion of genre is developing and being challenged in the postmodern era.
French Cultural Studies is currently one of the major areas of research
strength in the School of Languages and European studies with six members of
staff involved in research and publication. This research project, which is
expected to lead to a PhD., will therefore build in a significant way on
this important research area.

Teaching hours (up to six per week, in consultation with the supervisors
and depending on the appropriateness of the various modules on offer) are
possible and the research student appointed will benefit from extensive
library and audio-visual and computing facilities in a supportive, friendly
and fast-developing research environment.


The successful candidate must have a good Honours degree in French
and, if
shortlisted, be able to provide evidence of extended independent research of
high quality. Some grounding in current critical theory would be an advantage.
