English

Research centres: Centre for Victorian Studies; 18th-Century Narrative Consortium; Exeter Centre for Literatures of Identity, Place and Sustainability; Centre for Literature and Archives; Centre of Intermedia. The Centre for Victorian Studies (CVS) covers all areas of Victorian Britain and the Empire: culture (high Victorian and fin de siecle literature, gender, and sexuality); science (biology and economics); technology (print, optical and sound media). CVS is an institutional member of the University of California Dickens Project and annually sends one staff member and one advanced research student to California, where they share a week's academic activities with international Victorianists. CVS is also active in regular collaborations with the Nineteenth-Century Studies Centre at Birkbeck, the Victorian and late 19th and early 20th-century Divisions of the Modern Language Association of America, the North American Victorian Studies Association, the Australasian Victorian Studies Association, and the British Association for Victorian Studies. We have staff on the editorial boards of every significant Victorianist journal in Britain, North America and Australasia. The Long 18th Century research group hosts the 18th-Century Narrative Consortium which aims to provide a focus for research activities and publications centred on the cultural phenomenon of eighteenth-century narrative. The period that saw the dawn of the novel also witnessed the exponential development of a market for print culture and huge social change. Based at the Penryn Campus in Cornwall, the aim of the Exeter Centre for Literatures of Identity, Place and Sustainability is to facilitate interdisciplinary research into literary representations and constructions of identity and place, dealing with literatures of myth, memory and history, and developing a 'new' eco-criticism for the 21st century. The Centre for Literature and Archives holds many resources and manuscripts in the Special Collections archive, and actively encourages students to engage with this material. English staff are also involved in the College's interdisciplinary Centre for Intermedia which promotes advanced transdisciplinary research in performance and the arts through collaborations between artists, academics and scientists from a range of disciplines.

Entry requirements

Normally a good UK Honours degree (2.1 Honours or international equivalent) and a Master's degree, although in some cases (normally within the sciences) a Master's degree is not essential. Additional entry requirements may apply for certain research degrees and applicants should follow any specific guidance on the department's website. If applicants are international students, they also need to satisfy our English language entry requirements.
