Collaborative Research Areas
Much of our research is carried out collaboratively, with input from research colleagues in Contemporary Arts (Film, Fine Art, Theatre), English & Creative Writing, History, Linguistics, Medical Sciences, Sociology.
Many of our projects benefit from close association with cognate groups and centres both across and beyond Lancaster University: African Studies Group, Latin American Research Cluster and the Centre for Transcultural Writing & Research
Authors & the World is an interdisciplinary research hub that brings together Anglophone and non-Anglophone writers, translators, publishers, editors, reviewers and researchers from a broad sweep of disciplines in the Arts and Humanities.
Multilingual Creativities brings together a group of researchers from Lancaster, the UK and beyond who analyse the artistic, linguistic and literary forms of creativities attached to multilingualism and translation. This research cluster has grown from the Multilingual French Identities project set up by Charlotte Baker and Delphine Grass in 2013.
Our work explores new ways of conceptualising identity, paying particular attention to the ways in which gender, race, ethnicity and class are performed in discrete cultural contexts.
'Poetics of Resistance' explores how narratives, in the broadest sense, are used to social effect in a wide variety of cultural contexts.
