Research as well as teaching in the North American Studies Program engages North American literatures and cultures from their colonial beginnings to contemporary literary and cultural practices. Based on the expertise of its faculty and on its institutional partnerships, the program also focuses on North American history, politics, and economics. While covering a wide range of areas, faculty members particularly concentrate on issues of theory and method, on modernism and postmodernism, poetry and poetics, gender studies, African American studies, popular cultures, and the intersections of culture and economics. Individual and collaborative research conducted in the program have a strong record of attracting partners from North America and across Europe, exposing students to debates at the cutting-edge of the field.
