Research themes

The Centre’s international research covers a wide range of areas. We have particularly strong interests in performance and the voice, noise, sound and recording, world poetry, and the relationships between poetry and science.

Members

The Centre’s membership draws from a variety of fields, including English, Drama, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian, Physics, and Computing Science. This approach allows us to develop innovative research projects and teaching methods.

Projects

Members are engaged in ground-breaking creative and critical projects, including developing poetry archives, hosting radio programmes, running small presses and research seminars, and exhibiting and performing their work for public audiences.
