CSLLC purports to promote culture, literature and research in the humanities, to initiate and engage its members and collaborators in fundamental, applied and creative research projects. The research topics listed in the multiannual research plan (2020-2024) pertain to themes or subject areas within the fields of literary history and theory, linguistics and inter-/transcultural studies that have been insufficiently or only partially investigated locally, nationally and internationally, either from an intercultural or an interdisciplinary perspective. CSLLC offers support to scholarly work published at the Faculty of Letters and Arts, to joint research projects, and the dissemination of outcomes to both academia and the community. The Centre organises annual literary events and conferences on literary, linguistic, communication, cultural and translation themes. CSLLC is the result of the merging, in 2017, of the two older Research Centres at the Faculty of Letters and Arts, the Centre for Philological and Intercultural Research and the Centre for Anglo-American and German Studies, both founded in 2005. The steps taken towards relaunching and improving the Centre’s activity have included reorganising the Centre into three research groups (in accordance with the name of the Centre) and identifying priority research areas and themes. The Centre for Linguistic, Literary and Cultural Studies (CSLLC) at the Faculty of Letters and Arts is open to teaching staff and doctoral students at LBUS, as well as specialists from other national and international institutions.
