The School of English has a dynamic research culture, which involves staff, postgraduates and postdoctoral fellows in attending and organizing international conferences and literary festivals; in undertaking collaborative research and archival projects; as well as in the individual work of scholarly editing and the writing of monographs and works of literature. Our research work is divided into four groups, of which staff are members, and postgraduate students are associate members. These groups are: Mediaeval and Renaissance; 18th Century, Romantic and Victorian; Modern and Contemporary; and Creative Writing.
