Transcultural Writing

Research Activity

The Centre for Transcultural Writing and Research links writers, academics and Lancaster University’s postgraduate community to research activity in creative writing and its impact on society through a transnational interdisciplinary environment.

We are committed to promoting creative writing 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. Our international conference Writing for Liberty has been hosted in Lancaster (2015), Cape Town (2017) and Buenos Aires (2019).
