The Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR) was established in 2004 with the merger of the Institute of Germanic Studies and the Institute of Romance Studies, which were founded in 1950 and 1989, respectively. Its strengths are in the fields of Germanic, French, Hispanic, and Italian studies.
The Institute is committed to initiating, facilitating, and promoting dialogue and research for the Modern Languages community both nationally and internationally. It fosters and contributes to national and international collaborative, cross-disciplinary, and cross-cultural research through seminars, lectures, workshops, colloquia, conferences, a fellowships programme, and its five research centres.
The Director of the Institute of Modern Languages Research is Professor Catherine Davies.
