Anglo-American language and literature

The area of American Literature and Language operates at an international level researching authors and themes in American literature, culture, and language. It covers 19th and 20th century. Research is mainly dedicated to a) 19th century short story, with special emphasis on the works of Herman Melville and Edgar Allan Poe b) 19th century literary rhetorics and the debate on slavery with its political implications and as a basis for minorities issues c) English as hegemonic language in U.S. and its relation to minorities and their languages, with related consequences for cultural and social frames of references. American English is part of our investigations in that the area analyzes from a lexicographic point of view literary and cultural aspects of American English and slang, applying them to the field of translation in literature and film.
