Text production : past and present

As one of our key research themes, Text Production Past and Present engages academic staff and postgraduates across a wide spectrum of languages and disciplines. Our research in this area extends from the medieval to the contemporary period, and encompasses highly innovative work in translation studies, textual editing, literary adaptation, genre studies, linguistics, and connections between music, literature and the visual arts in the digital age. Current AHRC-funded research in Text and Production at Birmingham includes projects on French poetry, Russian-language media, and medieval Spanish literature.
