Organisation profile

Italian at Bristol has an international reputation in the field of Cultural Studies. We have a range of interdisciplinary interests that stretch from the Middle Ages to the present day. All members of the Department are actively involved in projects that allow us to combine our expertise with that of colleagues working in other leading universities in the UK and abroad. We regularly organize research events and give papers at major international conferences.

In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (2008), 95% of our research activity was judged to be internationally recognized, internationally excellent, or world-leading. This result built on the grade 5A obtained in RAE 2001 and confirmed Italian at Bristol as a major department in the discipline of Italian Studies.
