Research groups

The CRLC hosts research groups focusing on the work of DH Lawrence – whose writing is central to Nottinghamshire’s literary history – as well as on the wider interdisciplinary analysis of landscape, space and place. Our researchers in Drama and Creative Writing focus on the production and study of performance and creative practice, and the Nottingham Poetry Exchange sets up creative conversations within and beyond the School on the writing and reading of poetry and poetries. 

All of the research groups that sit within the Centre for Regional Literature and Culture have their own website. Use the links below to find out more.
