Research Unit in Literatures, Cultures, and Languages

The Research Unit of the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages embodies the collective work of over a hundred scholars—faculty and graduate students in our six departments and beyond—in addressing the fundamental issues of literary and linguistic scholarship, and rethinking the premises of such scholarship. The unit's PROJECTS serve as engines for the research, both individual and collaborative, of our participants. In that spirit, projects typically attend to broad topics, invite innovative approaches, and define their agendas according to the interests of the participants. Each project exists for up to three years. Colleagues and graduate students from Bay Area institutions are welcome to join.

The unit's CONFERENCES AND SERIES, bringing a range of international voices in literature and culture to the Bay Area, represent the public face of the division's enterprise. The WRITER IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM hosts a distinguished writer from outside the United States for an intensive month of readings, colloquia, and informal conversations. And the unit's INITIATIVES speak to the future of the division, identifying areas of research and pedagogy new to Stanford or to the discipline of literature.
