Centre for Transcultural Writing
Postgraduate study within the department has been strengthened by the establishment, in May 2007, of the Centre for Transcultural Writing and Research (CTWR).
The Centre for Transcultural Writing and Research links writers, academics and the department’s postgraduate student community to extensive research activity in creative writing and its impact on society. Our aim is to create a transnational and interdisciplinary environment. We are committed to promoting creative writing across cultures and to studying the work of writers from a wide range of social and cultural contexts.
The Centre encompasses research-as-practice, action-research projects, study of historical and contemporary creative practice, the innovative application of information technology through e-science and the interrelationship between writing and social change. We promote critical, pedagogical and theoretical accounts of praxis with special emphasis on cultural exchange between practitioners and with social and political institutions.
Recent Projects and Events
The activities of the Centre stimulate and explore creative process – its definition through textual production, mobility, publication, transmission, adaptation, re-writing and translation – and its theoretical and cultural context. Since its inception in 2007, CTWR has raised the profile of a range of pre-existing transcultural and intercultural research activities, including Crossing Borders, Radiophonics, Moving Manchester and Trans-Scriptions.
This year, our planned events include a new series of Trans-Scriptions, entitled ‘Writing for Liberty’, which is being funded by a generous donation from Lancaster University Friends Fund. We will also be creating a searchable archive of our current resources, enabled by Lancaster’s FASS Capital Expenditure Fund.
