In REF 2014, 100% of King’s Modern Languages research was recognised as having outstanding (4*) or considerable (3*) reach and significance. The Department of German contributed to this success with initiatives on literature, theatre, music and other art forms at institutions including the Southbank, Shakespeare’s Globe and Tate Modern. A REF film audience case study engaged further partners including the British Film Institute, Goethe-Institut, and Austrian Cultural Forum. For REF2021, the department’s German Screen Studies Network is further developing its strong impact track record with live events and online engagement across an international network of educational, research and cultural institutions.
