English Literature

Research in the Department of English brings the core values of our discipline - textual scholarship, critical and theoretical analysis, contextual knowledge - to the dynamic, changing field of literary and cultural study. We cover the full chronological range, from the medieval to the contemporary period, with many colleagues engaged in interdisciplinary research. We are proud of our significant expertise in medieval, early modern, romantic and Victorian literature; in poetry; in reception history; in modern literary theory; and in contemporary writing. New appointments in areas including postcolonial writing, modern and contemporary American writing, black British writing, medical humanities, digital humanities, women's writing and gender studies, and Welsh and Anglo-Welsh writing, bear witness to our appetite for growth and diversity, and we foster doctoral research both within the department and in collaboration with other departments at Bristol and beyond.
