FRIT Research Networks
The intellectual and curricular work of our department emerges from four research networks that reflect our interdisciplinarity and engagement with the most pressing questions of our time: Ecocriticism; Gender and Sexuality Studies; Media and Materiality; and Transnational Studies.
Graduate students in the Department of French & Italian produce, disseminate, and exchange cutting-edge research through their biennial conference, regular faculty-graduate student seminars, teaching and mentoring, MA theses, and doctoral dissertations.
FRIT undergrads have limitless opportunities to engage in original research, whether as faculty assistants or as emerging scholars in their own right. Learn more about research credit, research stipends and fellowships, and honors options at the departmental and Honors College levels.
