French Studies at Swansea has research strengths in written culture, from the Middle Ages to the present day. Staff focus in particular on: the medieval lyric; Enlightenment drama; nineteenth-century poetry; twentieth-century women's writing and feminism; travel; and the conflicted memories of World War Two. French boasts a dynamic research environment which has already won attention and funding from outside bodies such as the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Wellcome Trust and the EU. Staff are also actively involved in the Centre for research into Gender in Culture and Society (GENCAS).
