Who We Are

What We Offer

Welcome to Anglophone Literature and Culture at Göttingen University

Our staff teaches across a broad range of English Studies - from the literature and culture of the Renaissance period to contemporary English, Scottish and Irish writing as well the New Literatures in English; from English literary and cultural theory to gender studies and postcolonial studies; from cultural history to popular culture. We aim to provide you with a stimulating environment in which you can develop your interests and skills in all areas of English Literature as well as Cultural Studies. A particular asset is our annual
Edinburgh Summer School.

One of our key interests is to prepare students for a career in literary and cultural management. We offer special modules that introduce you to the literature and culture industries, and we help you find internships with literary and cultural institutions in Germany and abroad.

The superb resources in English and American literature in the SUB (Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek) and the outstanding eighteenth-century collections at the university research library further contribute to making Göttingen attractive for students of English.

The research interests of the members of staff include among others the key areas of Shakespeare Studies, Romanticism, Victorian Studies, Modernism and Postmodernism; Gender Studies, Scottish Studies, Postcolonialism, Book History and Travel Writing.
