We have developed an interdisciplinary approach to modern languages which is reflected in our research and teaching.
We explore questions of identity and belonging in collective and individual experience, considering how these are expressed in embodied and spatial practices across a wide range of cultures.
We investigate past and present alternative social and political movements from across the world, with a particular focus on critically exploring understandings of capitalism and modernity.
We examine the cultural, social and political meaning and impact of conflict, international development and disaster across the world, exploring their significance in the present era and historically.
We examine issues of minority, margin and otherness across diverse languages and cultures, exploring how depictions of individuals and groups characterised as 'other' shape social and political landscapes.
We research translation and adaptation in practice and in theory, focusing on the ways in which communication shifts articulate the global and the local in and across languages and cultures.
