Study type Research


Lusophone Studies is part of the Modern Languages research cluster, which provides a vibrant environment for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship. Recognised as a centre of excellence for research into the languages, literatures, histories, linguistics, visual cultures, and cultural identities of Europe and beyond, the cluster is founded on a dynamic and forward-looking research ethos.

You will have the opportunity to pursue an original research project working closely with your supervisory team. Staff supervising on the Lusophone Studies programme are engaged in cutting-edge research relating to the Portuguese-speaking world, with particular emphasis on Brazil and Portuguese-speaking Africa. Areas of research specialism include digital culture, documentary, gender studies, postcolonial literatures and film, representations of heroism, and urban cultural studies. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and comparative projects (whether within Lusophone Studies or with other language areas), as well as those involving fieldwork. We are happy to receive enquiries from prospective PhD students.
