About us...

The Department of English Language and Literature is the largest foreign language department of the Faculty of Letters, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, and one of the most important in Romania. 

It has highly enthusiastic, fully qualified members in the main specializations at undergraduate and MA levels that it offers, i.e. English Language and Literature, American Studies, Translation Studies, Terminology, Interpreting and Applied Linguistics.These are also the main areas of study and research for our undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students.

There is considerable opportunity for staff members and students to participate in research groups, conferences and other activities. The peer-reviewed printed and e-journal LINGUACULTURE is one of our successful projects – to which both outstanding Romanian and international scholars as well as successful MA and PhD graduates have contributed.

The Department of English of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi was set up in 1925 when Iancu (Ioan) Botez (1872-1947) was appointed professor of English literature and civilization.

  • Extended conference deadline: C.S. Lewis - Of This and Other Worlds

    The 5th International Interdisciplinary Conference in Iasi, Romania devoted to the life and work of C.S. Lewis: Of This and Other Worlds

    Registration deadline:1 November 2021
    Early bird deadline: 1 October 2021
    Poster cs 2021The fifth C. S. Lewis conference focuses on C. S. Lewis and his literary and academic kin as creators of worlds.

From pain to love, through faith and imagination, he opened a spectrum of realities inviting exploration and reflection. The collection of essays by Lewis alluded to in the title of this year’s conference spans both this and other worlds: “this” realm, which we inhabit, is the necessary, unavoidable starting point for any explorers, conquerors, pilgrims, even refugees into the “others”.
