School of Literature and Languages

Our focus is on understanding how texts and languages work across national boundaries, how they function, and how they interact. We bring together the academic disciplines of English literature, creative writing, film studies, modern languages, linguistics, intercultural communication and translation studies.


We have an international reputation for interdisciplinary research in literature, languages, linguistics and intercultural communication.
