School of Languages
and Literatures
Head of School: Associate Professor Clive
School Profile
The School of Languages and Literatures was formed
in 2002 through the amalgamation of the Department
of Southern African Languages and the Department of
Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures. The
School brings into one organisational unit the teaching of
languages and literatures (excluding English Language
and Literature) at the University of Cape Town.
We recognize the complexity of our position at the southern
end of Africa, in a University which strives to be fully part of
Africa and the wider world. The range of languages taught
in the School and the research done by staff and students
of the School reflect this.
The teaching and research area of the School is wide,
covering language, literatures and cultural studies in
Afrikaans,Arabic,Dutch, French,BusinessFrench,German,
Classical Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Portuguese, Sotho,
Spanish, and Xhosa, and Special Purposes teaching in
Afrikaans and Xhosa. There is also a strong emphasis
on the role that these languages and literatures and the
cultures they embody, have played and continue to play
in Africa. Research in the School also encompasses
Literary Semantics, Literary Theory, Afrikaans Media
Studies, Creative Writing in Afrikaans and Xhosa, Xhosa
Lexicography, Historiography, Multimedia, Literature and
the Internet, War Literature, Ancient Literature, Philosophy
and Rhetoric, French literature from 17
century to the
present, French Linguistics and Sociolinguistics, Teaching
French as a Foreign Language, German Colonialism
and Postcolonial Literature and Theory, Contemporary
German Literature, Literary Theory and Women’s Studies,
Italian and German post-war Cinema, Italian Literature
of the 19
and 20
centuries, Asian Cinema, Italian
Renaissance Literature, Modern and Ancient Hebrew
Literature, Classical Arabic Literature and Islamic Studies,
Modern Arabic Literature and Political discourse, and
Hispanic Literature.
The School’s awareness of its location in Africa is reflected
in many of its research projects. Among these are
studies of language learning in the African context, Xhosa
linguistics, African oral traditions and orature, Literature
