20th and 21st Century Literature and Theory Group
The field of 20th and 21st Century Literature and Theory is immensely diverse and rich, and one that transforms rapidly. English at Royal Holloway has an established tradition of shaping those developments, with marked strengths in the field and several world-leading scholars and critics specialising in such areas as Modernism, Literary Theory, Post-colonialism, Poetics, Science Fiction, and the Contemporary.
Members cover a range of approaches: from historicism, to the formalist and theoretical. Collaborations within and beyond the Department create dynamic interdisciplinary encounters between members' varied interests, both critical and creative. And so the Group’s work flourishes at points where numerous concerns of the 20th and 21st centuries intersect: Gender, Race, Sexuality, Textuality, Technology, Science, Media, the Holocaust, the effects of Crisis on culture and cultural politics.
