TIDE Writer in Residence

Fred DAguiar

TIDE is a five-year European Research Council funded project (2016-2021) led by the English Department’s Professor Nandini Das. The project aims to investigate how mobility in the great age of travel and discovery shaped English perceptions of human identity based on cultural identification and difference. This project consolidates our fragmented understanding of transculturality and the idea of ‘betweenness’ in the early modern period, which continues to have a significant impact on the contemporary world. The Centre for New and International Writing is collaborating with the TIDE Project to host a writer in residence for one week each year.

In 2017, our second TIDE writer is the poet Sarah Howe. Clips of her reading at the University of Liverpool are available here.
