This PhD is lead by the Literature, Theory and Creativity Research Unit in the School of Welsh.

We are one of the foremost centres of research in Welsh and other Celtic languages, and supervise PhD students working on other languages and international contexts.

Our interests span the fields of literature, linguistics, politics, legislation and culture – seeking to better understand their formative impact on the world we live in today, and how they can shape our future experiences.

  • literary theory
  • creative criticism

  • identities and gender
  • medieval poetry and prose
  • literature in the digital age

  • life writing
  • literature for children and young adults
  • comparative literature
