University of Sussex
The English faculty encompasses research strengths and interests that span most periods of English literature and contemporary critical theory. Particular areas of expertise include Renaissance writing; culture and ideology; the novel from the 18th century to the present; romantic, Victorian and modern poetry; and all aspects of modernism and postmodernism. There is a strong commitment to the interdisciplinary study of literature in its historical and discursive context in relation to philosophy, history of art and the history of ideas; to postcolonial and feminist criticism; to gay and blesbian criticism; and to recent developments in psychoanalytic, Marxist, post-structuralist and �new historicist� criticism.
