Research clusters

Among the most distinctive features of the School’s research is the creative-critical impetus that energises our work.

By incorporating creative approaches into scholarly inquiry or drawing critical-conceptual insight from creative experimentation, our work is responsive to, and invigorated by, multiple disciplinary methodologies. This enables staff to team up around trans-disciplinary clusters in mutually enriching ways.

Our six research clusters are:

  • digital cultures
  • visual cultures
  • gender and sexuality
  • language and health
  • welsh cultures
  • ethics and language.
