Jennifer Birkett's research derives from specialist bases in French Studies, but is also cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary. In French Studies, she works particularly on the fin de siècle, women's writing, 18th-century fiction, and modern drama; she has also written extensively on various aspects of Franco-British cultural exchanges.

Professor Birkett has supervised a range of theses on women's writing, drama, the French Decadence, and the Caribbean novel.
