About us

Research in Literary Studies is characterised by a combination of traditional literary scholarship and innovative interdisciplinarity.

Staff are engaged in editing scholarly new editions of important but neglected works and also investigate the connections between literature and other disciplines and subject areas, including history, philosophy, science, urban studies and visual cultures.

The department has established strengths in the following areas: Gothic studies, Victorian Literature and Culture, Modern and Contemporary Literature, and Cultural and Critical Theory.


The Literary Studies Research Group explores many themes such as Cultural and critical theory and Modern and contemporary literature.
