Areas of Research

Since the merging of several University departments into one, the researchers and Department management have worked actively to focus and identify shared competences.

Our research is carried out within five interdisciplinary and multilingual areas of research. In several of these areas, our researchers collaborate with researchers from other departments. It is in these profile areas that most of our research activities (seminars, workshops, theme days etc.) are arranged.

The research areas are:

Linguistic Structures

Coordinators: Evie Coussé (Docent in Linguistics, area head), Laura Downing (Professor of African Languages)
