We aim to produce research that is distinctive, socially and culturally relevant, and that influences national agendas. We continually strive to develop new areas of research excellence while, in certain areas, our work has already been acknowledged as world-leading. As a research student you will join a vibrant student community in our Research School and become part of our dynamic research environment. You will have the opportunity to be supervised by leading researchers in your field and to take advantage of our rich Researcher Development programme. This will help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to complete your research degree while enhancing the skills you will need in any future career. Recent successful projects have examined nature and home in the poetry of Edward Thomas and Robert Frost 1912-1917, commemoration, oblivion and cultural memories in print culture in Restoration England, 1658-1666, and the country house in English women's poetry 1650-1750. Some of our current research students are exploring survival and the formulation of child heroes in Terry Pratchett's children's fiction; children's Islamic literature in Britain, USA and Canada; vulnerability and resilience in Sonya Hartnett's novels; the island imagination; and the abhuman in multi-volume vampire fiction.
