The newly created Department of Film and Creative Writing brings together two dynamic and successful disciplines within the School of English, Drama and American & Canadian Studies. We are committed to creative and critical practice in teaching and research. Our staff include internationally renowned scholars and award-winning writers.
Employability is a key focus within the department and we enjoy excellent collaborative relationships with professional partners in film, television, theatre, literature and new media. As well as studying texts from a variety of critical, theoretical and historical perspectives, our students make films, perform poetry, develop screenplays, write novels and create television programmes. Their work can be found in theatres, in libraries, at festivals, in cinemas, on television screens, in newspapers, classrooms, online and in bookshops.
Interdisciplinary research is also encouraged through the B-Film Research Centre.
We welcome applications onto our three research programmes:
