Renowned for interdisciplinary research Renowned for interdisciplinary research

The intellectual character of the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing is formed through a unique conjunction of literary criticism, creative writing and literary translation.

The school is renowned for its interdisciplinary research and also has established research interests across most periods of English writing, including medieval and early modern literature, the long-nineteenth century and modern and contemporary writing.

Our reputation in critical and creative writing is based on award-winning works of fiction, poetry and drama, as well as innovative writing across the creative-critical border, such as works of creative non-fiction. The School is known for its distinguished works of translation and translation theory, and is the home of the British Centre for Literary Translation, a major research centre devoted to the theory and practice of literary translation.
