Writing War

Battle of Germany

Battle of Germany

The Writing War research cluster brings together academics from across the English Faculty and acts as a point of contact for those outside it.  Our wide-ranging research interests encompass topics from medieval battle poetry to Holocaust life-writing, from literary accounts of the English Civil Wars to bilingual poems about 21st-century Iraq and Afghanistan.  We explore the intersection of war with literature in a variety of areas: language, genre, gender, editing, life-writing, travel-writing, digitisation, commemoration, journalism, visual representation, religion and literary theory.  Members of the cluster have produced blogs, award-winning memoirs, online archivesinternational seminar series, academic monographs and journalism.
