Course summary

Why choose this course

At the Research Centre for Mobilities in Literature and Culture, we bring together researchers from across the School of Literature and Languages to examine pressing social and cultural issues. These themes of exploration include social and cultural networks; cities and urban culture; subversive space and the imagination of alternative spaces; disconnections and connections; embodiment and the practice and politics of movement; post-humanism; transnationalism and its limitations.

We’re part of TECHNE, an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded doctoral training partnership, which provides access to comprehensive academic and professional training programmes, as well as the possibility of funding for your studies. Our projects are currently looking at areas such as the work of British artist George Frederic Watts (1817-1904), cartoneras publishing in South America and French migration and anarchist movements.

We’re part of the interdisciplinary School of Literature and Languages, which has research active staff in English Literature, Creative Writing, Film Studies, Translation Studies, Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, and Literary and Cultural Studies.

You’ll join a cosmopolitan, multilingual and multicultural community of students and scholars, and we see our research students as being a core part of the School.

What you will study

You’ll be assigned two supervisors, who you’ll meet with monthly to discuss your progress. Your supervisors will guide you through your PhD, and will give you feedback and advice on your work.

As a doctoral student in the School of Literatures and Languages, you’ll receive a structured training programme covering the practical aspects of being a researcher, including grant writing, publishing in journals, and applying for academic jobs.

Research themes

  • Latin American literary and cultural studies
  • Transnational history and its methodologies
  • Franco-British political and cultural exchanges, nineteenth and twentieth centuries
