Research in English, History and Writing
Our ground-breaking research across a number of disciplines has earned us a reputation on the national and international stages.
Discover more about some of our research activities:
- Our regular i-Mean conference brings together experts from around the globe to share their thoughts and findings on meaning in social interaction, and further the field of linguistic studies.
- The Digital Cultures Research Centre (DCRC) is a hub where our network of researchers delves into the practices and socio-cultural meanings of emerging media. We study the application, processes and politics of digital creative technologies and feed this research directly back into your learning.
- Literary Bristol is an ongoing impact case study by several researchers in English Literature. Led by Professor Marie Mulvey-Roberts, its aim is to raise awareness of Bristol and the South West’s neglected literary heritage.
- Associate Professor of English Literature, Dr David Greenham, is recognised for his ongoing research into Ralph Waldo Emerson, the 'father of American literature'. Get a taste by watching his School of Life video.
- Our Regional History Centre seminar series is a monthly event in partnership with M Shed. Free to attend, it's our chance to invite experts to share their research into the history of Bristol and the South West.
- We work closely with the Pervasive Media Studio to support our students to engage with innovative creative technology projects. Previous opportunities have involved working on social media-based publicity campaigns, and with experienced pervasive and trans-media producers to create and deliver apps to accompany events and activities. You could also be invited to test new applications, devices and experiences with the studio residents.
