Welcome to the centre for Regional Literature and Culture


Members of the CRLC are interested in a variety of research methodologies, including: text editing, book-history, cultural geography, and individual-author studies.

The CRLC is home to a thriving, international postgraduate community working towards both Masters and Doctoral degrees. We welcome expressions of interest from students wishing to pursue postdoctoral research at Nottingham.

The CRLC hosts a regular series of events, including two interdisciplinary seminar series, regular public talks and lectures, and a number of reading group meetings.
