Willingness to take PhD students


PhD projects

Ruth Whittle’s research interests include nineteenth- and early twentieth-century German literature as well as foreign language acquisition, particularly e-learning, and business German. In her current project she is investigating the relationship between gender, canon and literary history. She has supervised theses on professional women’s biographical writing and female suicide.

Dr Whittle would be happy to supervise doctoral research relating to any of these fields.
