Russian & Slavonic Studies MPhil and PhD MPhil
The Department offers excellent research supervision for both MPhil and PhD, full-time and part-time and has internationally-recognised expertise in Russian culture and South East European studies. Specific areas of research on the Russian side are: 20th/21st century literature and culture (humour and satire; poetry; the Russian canon; early 20th century literary movements; Soviet and post-Soviet cultural studies); theatre (in Russian and in exile); and gender studies (women's writing).

Expertise in South East European Studies includes: Serbian/Croatian literature, literary and cultural theory and cultural studies; and narratives of national identity (literature, theatre and film).

As well as excellent facilities, including a dedicated postgraduate area, students enjoy interdisciplinary links with Schools such as Politics, History and Geography, by means of the Nottingham Institute for Russian and East European Studies, and Nottingham is a partner in the Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies (CRCEES), funded by AHRC, ESRC, HEFCE and SHEFCE and spearheaded from Glasgow. CRCEES awards studentships at all postgraduate levels and runs an annual Research Forum and Summer School especially for the postgraduates of its member institutions.

We also have strong links with academic institutions in Russian and Serbia, which our students are able to utilise. Further travel opportunities exist through the Universitas 21 programme.
