Numerous books, scholarly monographs, journal articles and editions have been produced by the Department’s academic staff in recent years, and many acts regularly in the capacity of expert readers for publishers and editors. The Department has also hosted a range of successful international conferences covering areas such as nineteenth-century literature and culture, language and representations of social class, queer cultures, and Holocaust representations and gender.
