Organisation profile

The Department of English is distinguished by its strong commitment to literary studies, as a serious yet immediately pleasurable academic discipline, together with an awareness of how much there is to gain through dialogue with other disciplines in the University and beyond.

The research of the English department staff covers literature, poetry and drama from the Middle Ages to the contemporary period, using many perspectives and literary theories, such as reception and critical theory, deconstruction, post-structuralism, feminism and queer theory, and comparative literature.
