The Research Environment for Language and Culture is a meeting place for linguistic and literary research in a cultural context. The research comprises everything from everyday conversations to literary texts, from medieval love poetry to press releases, the use of social media and classroom conversations. 

The graduate school also helps educate cognitive scientists, speech therapists and future teachers. The interaction between our different perspectives means that we develop and contribute to an understanding of the significance of linguistic and literary phenomena, both in a historical and a contemporary perspective. The graduate school is linked with under-graduate education in Comparative Literature, English, French, German, Spanish and Swedish.
