War, Literature and Culture

The War, Literature, Culture research cluster brings together academics from across the English Faculty and acts as a point of contact for those outside it.  Our research ranges from the medieval period to the 21st century.  We explore the intersection of war with literature and culture in a variety of areas: language, genre, gender, editing, life-writing, travel-writing, digitisation, commemoration, journalism, visual representation, religion and literary theory.
