Aesthetics, Art and Literature
Aesthetics, Art and Literature is a distinctly interdisciplinary group. As well as working on more traditional topics in aesthetics and philosophy of literature, it enables researchers from different academic disciplines to exchange ideas and methods, to collaborate across traditional boundaries, and to work closely with other institutions and the community on issues of intellectual and cultural importance.
Research themes of members of this group include: aesthetics and art theory, philosophy and literature, history of art, creativity, engaging with museum collections, archiving, and science fiction.
We welcome expressions of interest from prospective students wishing to embark on postgraduate research in any of these areas. A linked MA degree programme is MA in Art, Aesthetics, and Cultural Institutions.
