Research

The Carolina-Duke Graduate Program in German Studies places a premium on fostering innovative research. Graduate students study with faculty members whose combined research covers every chapter of literary, cinematic and cultural history, from medieval manuscripts to contemporary media. Carolina-Duke faculty and students integrate research in German Studies into a widely interdisciplinary dialogue, engaging with Comparative Literature, European Studies, Film and Media Studies, Jewish Studies, Women and Gender Studies, Philosophy, Linguistics, Science Studies, Medieval and Early Modern Studies, and Religious Studies. Graduate students also have the opportunity to work with affiliated faculty members at both campuses who have research interests in German Studies and who work in other disciplines (Art History, Communication Studies, History, Music, Philosophy, and Political Science).
