Postgraduate students have the opportunity to explore ambitious transcultural projects that cut across disciplinary boundaries. In particular, we invite applications in the areas covered by our four School research clusters:
In collaboration with the Stirling Maxwell Centre and building on the expertise in text/image research within the School, this cluster explores visual culture in literature and the arts in a broad sense (e.g., Mexican photography, French architecture and art, or Brazilian film).
Histories and Subjectivities
This cluster brings together researchers in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures whose work engages with life histories and autobiography, the body and emotions, gender studies, working lives and professional cultures, history and memory.
Writing in Transit/Cultural Translations
This cluster brings together our expertise in Comparative Literature, Translation Studies and cross-cultural research, exploring topics such as transnational writing, migration, (un)translatability, ethics and world literature.
Critical Editions and Translations
In close collaboration with Special Collections and researchers in other Schools of the College of Arts, this cluster explores textual cultures, drawing on the School’s expertise and experience in critical editions, book history and translations.
