Study type Research


This course draws on inter-disciplinary and theoretically inflected approaches. It encourages students to explore concepts and problems across boundaries, disciplines and historical periods, use their research to offer novel combinations of writing and thinkig and pursue problems that generate new kinds of criticism. Criticism and Culture students frequently work across conventional period boundaries and literary categories. Past and current research projects address, among other things, topics in poetics; visual culture; post-colonial and global literatures and eco-poetics, and draw together literature and science, screen media and the digital humanities.
