The Department currently enjoys a partnership with the University of Canterbury in Kent, working on a six-year joint project entitled Chaucer in Bohemia (2011–2017), and with linguistically and philologically oriented medieval scholars in Oxford and Cambridge Universities. Furthermore, our participation in student and teacher exchange programmes and other partnership initiatives has brought us into contact with English departments in the UK (Sheffield, Bristol, Birmingham, Kent, Manchester), continental Europe (Freiburg, Munich, Vienna, Innsbruck, Poznań, Katowice, Granada, Helsinki, Zurich, Rioja, Málaga, Louvaine), the USA and other parts of the world.
The Department moreover maintains close partnerships with English departments all over the Czech Republic (Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Education, Masaryk University in Brno; Philosophical Faculty, Palacký University in Olomouc; Faculty of Arts, University of Ostrava and others) as well as Slovakia (Department of British and American Studies at the Faculty of Arts, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice; Faculty of Arts, Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra), while members of our Department sit on various academic boards, contributing to the development of the field locally. Each year, the Department is proud to welcome visiting lecturers from universities and academic institutions abroad, including Karl-Maxmilian Universität in Munich, University of Freiburg, University of Helsinki, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and University of Leuven, Belgium.
Faculty of Arts maintains an extensive network mutual agreements as pat of the Erasmus+ student exchange programme. If you are interested, contact one of the coordinators for the English Studies Programme (Jiřina Popelíková or Pavla Veselá).
