In this section
Research at ULIP is interdisciplinary: encompassing diverse aspects of French culture, language, and history, in a wider context of the study of mobility, multilingualism, and international politics. Individual staff research has been recognized in the past two assessment exercises as ‘internationally excellent’ (REF 2014, RAE 2008).
Research Seminars and Events
ULIP acts as a hub for debate and discussion at the heart of the anglophone community in Paris. Attracting speakers from the international academic community, the media, government bodies, and NGOs, ULIP hosts regular lectures and debates throughout the academic year, as well as running two seminar series.
Paris Centre for Migrant Writing and Expression
The Paris Centre for Migrant Writing and Expression has been working with academics, students, asylum seekers and refugees in Paris to investigate varied questions of mobility and displacement, translation, multilingualism, and cultural transfer for over five years.
Partners and Public Engagement
ULIP’s commitment to academic exchange and the promotion of new knowledge sees our researchers engaged in a wide variety of partner and public engagement work. Our faculty are always looking to increase the impact of their research by forging new partnerships and with regular public workshops and events.
Our research students work under the expert supervision of ULIP academic staff and are investigating truly diverse subject matter, ranging from gender in French literature to intersections between fine art and the translation of poetry, from poetics and narrative fiction to the Situationist movement.
