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.
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. Read about recent honors theses and about our Undergraduate Research Conference in the Modern Languages.
FRIT's Intellectual Community
Our intellectual community extends well beyond our work as individual researchers; it is made up of regular Faculty-Graduate Seminars, a long list of distinguished visitors, and intellectual collaborations with colleagues, institutions, and networks around the world.
