Centre for Transnational Studies


The Centre for Transnational Studies has an interdisciplinary and cross-national focus. It brings together expertise from across the Humanities and the Social Sciences, particularly from modern languages, linguistics, regional and national identities, literary and cultural studies, film and television studies, and historical, social and political studies. Our projects cut across language barriers and national borders and the Centres members have strong links with other national and international centres of research, thus providing an intellectual frame for many externally funded research projects.

The Centres teaching and research counter the dominance of English-language models of transnational theory by exploring models drawn from across Europe, Francophone and Lusophone Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Latino culture in the United States.
