    Our research in English language and literature covers all periods from the Renaissance to the present day.

We have many areas of specialisation including:

  • 20th and 21st-century popular culture
  • Victorian, Edwardian and Neo-Victorian
  • Renaissance
  • Scottish studies
  • gender and sexuality
  • animal studies
  • life writing
  • periodical/newspaper culture
  • heritage
  • linguistic and cognitive literary studies

Colleagues in English, Creative Writing and in Journalism work closely together and with colleagues in History and Languages, all of which are contained within the same School of Humanities. Students are co-supervised across different subject areas within the School, as well as across the University and with English and History departments in other Scottish universities.
