European Studies Research Unit

The European Studies Research Unit promotes research in the field of European Studies within the Department of English, Writing and Drama. The ethos of the unit is built around a multi-disciplinary approach with a strong, but not unique emphasis on developments in contemporary Europe. Within the department there is a range of research currently being conducted in a number of very topical areas:

  • Cross-border Cultures and Institutional Cooperation
  • European social policy and globalisation
  • The Europeanisation of Environmental Policy
  • Opposition to the European Union within nation states
  • The far-right in contemporary Europe
  • The politics of immigration and identity

The Unit stages a series of research seminars throughout the academic year and invites contributions from speakers within the Department, as well as guest speakers from UK and international Universities.
