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.

Research Unit, please visit the Guidelines
