The Department’s distinctive feature is its foundation in foreign languages. Their research is carried out within the field of the foreign languages. These languages are their point of departure, their research object and a means of investigation, because culture is understood and experienced through language. The Department’s activities are aimed at both the public and private sectors. The activities contribute to Denmark’s continued participation in international dialogue and promote international understanding and trade through knowledge, cultural insight and linguistic expertise.
