The SLCL Media Portal offers a window on the diverse activities that take place within the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics at UCD Dublin (Ireland). This Media Portal is a creative extension of our School web page. During the recent School review, there was collective appreciation that greater online visibility would permit us to share more about the work we do, both relating to our independent research projects, or to our collaborative work with colleagues at home and abroad.

Our research inspires our research-led taught modules for students. By its very nature, much of that research and teaching is interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary in nature, as evidenced by the variety of content and approach. This is particularly evident in the wide variety of School publications on myriad topics. Glimpses of our teaching and research activities are now being captured and posted online. As you browse through this Media Portal, we warmly welcome you to review a broad range of photos, noticeboards, PhD student biographies, recordings, videos, interviews, plans, module descriptors, research ideas, conferences and Talks.

While this Portal project is still in its infancy, we hope to grow it significantly over time, so please browse today and come back to visit us again soon.

A Brief History

SLCL is one of seven Schools in UCD College of Arts and Humanities. The School was first formed in 2005 when five previous individual departments joined together. In 2015, Linguistics was moved into the School of Languages and Literatures to provide a new configuration. Since September 2015, the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics comprises one experimental three-year post in Chinese Studies and five core Subject sections: French and Francophone Studies; German Studies; Italian Studies; Linguistics; Spanish and Portuguese Studies.
