TU Dresden is my Uni because it co-operates internationally. The “Centrum Frankreich | Frankophonie” promotes intercultural competence through encounters with scientists and authors, and advocates open-mindedness and diversity.
I am a professor at the Institute of Romance Studies and founding director of the Centrum Frankreich | Frankophonie (CFF). I work at TU Dresden because it actively promotes internationalisation and because its Priority Area “Culture and Societal Change” encourages research on contemporary topics.
Here, I am holding a novel by the French author Cécile Wajsbrot, currently a DRESDEN Fellow of the lectureship of poetics at the Centrum Frankreich | Francophonie. Literary texts and other cultural storage media can contribute to the diagnosis of our contemporary societies through the knowledge they contain. The CFF, with members from numerous faculties, has a broad interdisciplinary base and sees itself as a place of Franco-German scientific and cultural exchange, as a contact point for international co-operation and as a mediator of competence regarding francophone cultural regions.
The CFF brings together actors from the whole of TU Dresden who are interested in France and francophony. It maintains regional, national and international collaborations, for example, with the DRESDEN-concept partners, the Institut Français d’Allemagne, the Franco-German University, or with the diplomatic representation of the Québec government.
The Faculty of Linguistics, Literature and Cultural Studies is strong in research, innovative and international. More than 4,000 students of English Studies, American Studies, German Studies, Classical Philology, Romance Studies and Slavic Studies are provided with attractive conditions for studying through faculty links to current research projects and international collaborations.
