Organisational unit: Institute

Organisation profile

At the interface of cultural studies and education, the Institute contributes to a number of different BA, MA and M.Ed. degree courses, e.g. Bachelor Lehren und Lernen, Master of Education, Leuphana Bachelor (Major Cultural Studies).

The Institute comprises the fields of English Linguistics, English Literature, Teaching English as a Foreign Language and Area Studies & Language Skills.

Topics

The Institute of English Studies' research reflects the diversity of English and Englishes, English literature and literatures, English culture and cultures, and the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).

We focus on the heterogeneous and hybrid nature of these research areas and the application of our findings in various contexts. Current projects reflect this inter- and transdisciplinary approach. Research in the field of TEFL deals with personal and affective factors of the learner personality and with the intercultural structure of acquisition and communication situations. Competence orientation and assessment are important aspects of our research.
