We bring together academics and students with shared research interests contemporary literature.
The Contemporary Literary Cultures Research Group (CLiC), was formed in September 2020 in response to the way in which the field of literary studies has expanded in recent years to productively encompass disciplines whose engagement with narrative and textuality had previously gone under recognised. The group arose out of a desire to recognise this trend, and the work colleagues across the institution are already undertaking in interrogating and mapping it:
- Indigenous literatures
- Spectrality studies
- Video game studies
- Spoken word poetry
The group is directed by Dr Lucy Arnold.
