Italy has the fourth-largest economy in Europe and the fourth-largest population in Western Europe, so it is an important country for anyone who wants to understand Europe’s history, culture and politics from the past to the present day, as well as the connection between Europe and the Middle East.

The study of Italian language, literature and culture is based on Italian language, culture, history and social conditions. The work done by researchers in this subject is cross-disciplinary, including and developing theories and methods (for instance linguistics and foreign-language acquisition, culture and globalisation studies) from a variety of subjects in close contact with Danish and international partners.

Research environment

Current research focuses on memory theory, globalisation, cultural identity, cognitive linguistics, translation theories, foreign-language acquisition and didactics, and IT as a tool for language and cultural learning.
