Research at the interface

The four research groupings in the School generate research of international standing in three disciplinary domains.

The LITERATURE AND CRITICAL THEORY  research grouping, encompassing the CENTRE FOR EDITORIAL AND INTERTEXTUAL RESEARCH (CEIR), and CENTRE FOR CRITICAL AND CULTURAL THEORY is internationally distinctive in how it articulates historical, theoretical and editorial work across a broad range of periods and cultural forms, with particular focus on revisions and reconstructions of the past, book history, the interface of the verbal and the visual, and creative writing.

The CENTRE FOR LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION RESEARCH works at the interface of theoretical and applied research in the domains of identity and culture, linguistic knowledge, and professional and public discourse. It encompasses the former Cardiff HEALTH COMMUNICATION RESEARCH CENTRE.

In PHILOSOPHY researchers engage in two main areas, moral and political philosophy, and philosophy of mind, with much of their activity at the intersection of these domains, and at that of the continental and analytic traditions. It also houses the CENTRE FOR APPLIED ETHICS.

A view from Professor Alison Wray, School Director of Research


“For a School with such a broad range of disciplinary areas there is a remarkable amount of similarity in the kinds of questions we ask in our research. In addition to themes like identity, gender, change and various types of ‘translation’ across texts and cultures, I’m particularly struck by our communal interest in what goes on at the interface of different traditions, methodologies, theoretical approaches, disciplines and practices. It gives Cardiff a particular entry into cutting edge research that continually engenders new and interesting questions both for our staff and, through our PhD supervision and our research-led teaching, also for our students at all levels.”
