Dynamic. Innovative. Experimental.
We have a fresh take on literature. We're specialists in world literature – including American, Caribbean, and European literature – Early Modern and Renaissance literature, Romanticism, translation studies and adaptation, as well as colonial and postcolonial literatures. We're proud of the talent we nurture. Our history of staff and students have been Nobel Prize winners, Booker Prize winners and Pulitzer Prize winners.
Based in our Department of Literature, Film and Theatre Studies we like to utilise our interdisciplinary nature to push the boundaries. Our research projects are topical, with a strong focus on ecocriticism, green writing and literary geographies.
