We are delighted to announce the launch of our new PhD Intermediality, which is the only such programme in the UK.

In the course of your PhD research, you will explore interactions between different media such as literature and photography, film and the other arts, word and image, and literature and performance.

Our programme draws on the expertise of staff from across the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC). Literature and the arts have been taught here for over 250 years, and our research expertise covers a broad range of intermedial phenomena such as:

  • the graphic novel
  • film adaptation
  • video games
  • photo-literature
  • cinematic intermediality
  • theatre and performance
  • digital literature

Join our vibrant community of researchers and undertake a specialised research project under the guidance of supervisors with particular expertise in your area of studies. As well as European literature, film, visual culture, theatre and performance we have particular strengths in literature and the arts from East Asia, Latin America, Francophone Africa and the Caribbean, the Middle East, and literature written in English from around the world.

Across the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures and the wider University, we are able to support PhD theses crossing boundaries between languages and/or disciplines, including:

  • Film Studies
  • Comparative Literature
  • Theatre Studies
  • Adaptation Studies
  • Word and Image Studies

Over the course of your PhD, you’ll be expected to complete an original body of work under the expert guidance of your supervisors leading to a dissertation of usually between 80,000 and 100,000 words.
