Contemporary English Studies is one exciting area of teaching and research. The Department of English offers a Honours Degree programme and a postgraduate programme in English Studies. For us, English Studies embraces the study of Contemporary Literature in English, Applied Linguistic Studies and Language Studies. We recognise English as an international discourse or lingua franca, no longer a literature and language belonging to Britain and North America.
Our departmental research interests include:
English in Hong Kong
World Englishes and English as a Lingua Franca
Discourse Analysis and Multimodal Discourse Analysis
Second Language Pronunciation
