Collaborations and activities

Research clusters

Members of the English department regularly lead research clusters in the Faculty of Arts, bringing together researchers from across the disciplines.

  • 'Borders and Borderlands' (Professor Helen Fulton)
    This group brings together researchers in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to explore representations of border spaces and cultural practices in unstable multicultural and multilingual border environments.
  • 'Bodies of Water' (Dr Michael Malay)
    This group focuses on the sea as a physical and environmental phenomenon around which literary and historical texts find their purpose and meaning.

Public engagement

The Department has ongoing partnerships with many organisations and institutions in and around Bristol, providing a focus for lectures, readings, debates, and similar public events. Recent events include:
