RESEARCH EXCELLENCE FRAMEWORK (REF) 2014

We are extremely pleased that, out of a 90% staff entry, 77% of our work was ranked as 'internationally excellent', and a quarter as 'world-leading'. Our research environment is above the national average, and, in this lively and exciting context, we are pleased to note an advance upon our 2008 RAE average rating for outputs. When viewed in relation to the percentage of staff entered and our ranking, we are firmly in the top third of U.K. English Literature departments and look forward to building upon this strong showing and its relation to our teaching in the next REF.

Our Research Groups: many researchers within English are actively involved in collaborative and interdisciplinary research centres and groupings.

Publications from the Department of English Literature: we share with you here our research publications, which can also be found at CentAUR: Central Archive at the University of Reading                                                                         

Research Projects: projects by researchers within the department develop specialist knowledge in our areas of excellence.               beckett for research page

Collaborations and Networks: collaborative and interdisciplinary work informs much of the research within the department.
