LINEE - Languages in a Network of European Excellence

Since November 2006, several faculty members and PhD students associated with the department have participated in the EU-funded research project LINEE (“Languages in a Network of European Excellence”).

The general aim of LINEE is to investigate linguistic diversity in Europe in a coherent and interdisciplinary way, by developing an innovative, visible and durable scientific Network that can overcome fragmentation and serve as a world-wide quality and knowledge-based reference framework. In particular, LINEE aims to integrate and embed the research and structural capabilities of the partners, exchanging and consolidating good scientific and managerial practices by staff meetings/workshops, mobility, training and other activities. The research space is being re-defined through the development of new methodological and theoretical platforms, that can serve as benchmarks for a concept of “New Multilingualism”.

The Gender Studies Research Group

The Gender Studies Research Group at the Institute of English and American Studies (IEAS), University of Szeged is responsible for the postgraduate program “Gender through Literatures and Cultures in English” as one of the three tracks that students admitted to the MA in English Studies degree must choose for their specialization. The program is launched in September 2009. To our professional and personal pride, it is the first (and yet the only) one of its kind in the educational program of the Hungarian University Faculties of Humanities.
