Course summary

Based within the School of Social Sciences and Humanities, academic staff in English are active researchers, working within and across the disciplinary boundaries of the humanities. From period-based expertise to cutting-edge editorial projects, we are engaged in innovative research that combines traditional approaches with fresh methodologies, making new discoveries and expanding the horizons of literary study, in order to make English relevant to today's most pressing questions. We are proud of the diversity and range of our research expertise. English at Loughborough has an established reputation in period-based literary studies, as well as with increasing expertise in interdisciplinary areas such as the digital, editorial practice, multimodality, contemporary feminism, utopianism, film and philosophy. Research in the division takes place across the full range of early modern, seventeenth century, eighteenth century, nineteenth century, and twentieth and twenty-first century literature and culture. We have internationally recognised strengths in seventeenth-century literary studies, as seen in the 1-million pound AHRC-funded project Editing Aphra Behn in the Digital Age. This project epitomises that way in which we push the boundaries of traditional literary study at Loughborough, combining traditional approaches with cutting-edge methodologies in order to bring literature to life for the modern age. Our lively research culture reflects this passion for new research, with regular work-in-progress seminars and lectures from prestigious invited speakers. Our postgraduate students are active participants in these events, as emerging researchers in their own right. Finally, we actively engage in collaborations beyond the University, with regional, national and international partners including libraries, museums, galleries and literary societies, in order to disseminate our research to the widest possible audience.
