School of English

  • Description
  • The School of Eng­lish at Liv­er­pool has an out­stand­ing inter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion. In the offi­cial Research Assess­ment Exer­cises we were ranked 5** (the high­est achiev­able) in 2001, and in 2008 two thirds of all our research activ­ity was rated in the high­est pos­si­ble cat­e­gories of ‘World-​leading’ or ‘Inter­na­tion­ally excel­lent’, with the remain­der almost entirely des­ig­nated as ‘Inter­na­tion­ally recog­nised’. There is a lively research cul­ture of reg­u­lar sem­i­nars by vis­it­ing speak­ers and guest lec­tures, as well as by our own staff and post­grad­u­ates and out­side the depart­ment there are many thriv­ing inter-​departmental net­works to which staff and stu­dents belong, such as the Eigh­teenth Cen­tury Worlds net­work or the Cul­ture and Cre­ativ­ity Research Net­work (CCRN), to name but two.
