Department of English

Head: Associate Professor Pauline Nestor

Graduate coordinator: Professor Clive Probyn

English literature is the study of English-language literatures (in practice those of the British Isles, Australasia and North America). Particular strengths in the department include pre-1800 British literature, Australian literature (including its regional and textual character), literary biography, women's studies, literary theory, literature and the history of ideas, poetics, the construction of canons and the newly emerging developments of English studies. Applications to work for a higher degree in any area of English will be considered on merit and in relation to the expert supervision available.
