English at Sussex has long been an intellectual shaping force, with current and past faculty forming something of a 'who's who' of English studies of modern times. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise 95 per cent of the School's research was rated as internationally recognised, and we aim to build on this past success in the forthcoming Research Excellence Framework (REF). 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.
Many faculty members from English and from other departments are involved in our dynamic programme of research seminars, workshops and conferences. Please keep abreast of what's going on by regularly checking the English Signpost page, for up-to-date listings of events.
