Courses in English at Malm� University's School of International
Migration and Ethnic Relations (IMER) are primarily concerned with the
critical study of language as an expression of self and society, and
literature as individual and cultural expression. These are important
components in the broader field of 'communication', which is studied
in the context of migration and globalization, and the mulitcultural
and multilingual society in which we exist.

Students first learn the essential tools of linguistic and literary
analysis and then go on to apply their knowledge, gaining a better
understanding of how power structures and cultural values are created
and perpetuated through language and literature.

The appointed candidate will be expected to contribute to the School's
multidisciplinary approach to these key issues.

The University of Malm� is an equal opportunities employer. As more
than half of the English department at IMER are men, qualified women
are strongly encouraged to apply.

Interested applicants are invited to make informal contact with the
head of IMER's Language Department, Dr Jean Hudson
