School of Languages, Literature and Cultural Studies In 1776, Trinity was the first university in the world to  introduce the study of modern continental languages. Since then, we have  produced thousands of high-achieving graduates, including one Nobel Prize  winner. Through the wide range of literatures and cultures represented on  the courses offered in the School, our international links and exchange  programmes and our commitment to research in diverse cultures, the School  embodies and promotes the understanding and practices of cultural and  linguistic diversity. Together with our colleagues in other Irish universities,  we have kept Ireland open to cultural exchange and dialogue. The School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies hosts a thriving community of postgraduate  students some of whom are undertaking taught programmes, leading to the degree  of M.Phil while others are studying for the research degrees of M.Litt. or  Ph.D. We currently offer six Taught Postgraduate Programmes in Comparative Literature; Literary Translation; Medieval Language, Literature and  Culture; Textual and Visual Studies; European Studies; Early Irish.

Literature Ireland is the national organisation for the international promotion of the literature of Ireland. This is done primarily by awarding translation grants to international publishers. The organisation also operates a programme of residential bursaries for literary translators, organises translator and author events at international festivals and participates regularly in the major world book fairs. In addition, applications are welcomed from Irish publishers who wish to publish international literature in translation. A not-for-profit organisation, Literature Ireland is funded by both Arts Councils in Ireland and by Culture Ireland. Established in 1994, Literature Ireland has funded the translation of over 1,500 works of Irish literature into 50 languages around the world.

The Centre is happy to collaborate with other research bodies, cultural agencies and publishing houses nationally and internationally . We currently have links with the Gorky Literary Institute (Moscow).
