Doctoral Programme in English Language and Literature

Welcome to the website of the Doctoral Programme in English Language and Literature. On the pages of this site you will find information concerning the aims and organisation of the programme, as well as the events planned for the current year. Doctoral students of the CUSO universities and their affiliates are warmly encouraged to participate in these events. 

What's new?

  • With the start of the new year we welcome Prof. Agnieszka Soltysik Monnet (Unil) as the new director of the CUSO Doctoral Programme in English Language and Literature. After six years as the director of our programme, Prof. Margaret Tudeau-Clayton (Unine) has passed on her responsibilities to Prof. Soltysik Monnet, who has served as a committee member of the programme since 2009.
    We would like to take this occasion to thank Margaret for her committment to the programme and her unstinting efforts over the years to improve the programme so that it serves the needs of doctoral students. Thank you very much, Margaret!
    A second change in our committee concerns the post of the doctoral representative, Sangam MacDuff. Sam will defend his thesis on James Joyce's Epiphanies this Friday in Geneva, meaning that we will subsequently need a new doctoral representative on our committee. We wish Sam a brilliantly successful viva and thank him for all his valuable input as doctoral representative and as (co-)organiser of highly appreciated events. Thanks a lot, Sam!
  • The 2017 Programme is online and open for registration!
