We seek to foster a creative, supportive and innovative culture of research within the School, encouraging both individual research projects and collaborations across the School and indeed across the University and the UK. The results of the 2014 Research Excellence Framework place us 9th in the UK out of 89 submissions to the English Language and Literature panel. 45% of work has been assessed as ‘world leading’, while a further 39% has been assessed as ‘internationally excellent’. Our research environment is assessed at 90% ‘world leading’, placing us 3rd in the UK. Faculty in Literature, Language and Drama were submitted to the English panel. English leads the University of Sussex with the best overall result in the institution.
Many faculty members from English and from other departments are involved in our dynamic programme of research seminars, workshops and conferences. See the English Signpost page, for up-to-date listings of events.
