Literacy, literature and creativity

We are interested in many kinds of innovative and creative approaches to literature, arts and culture in education, across the world and across languages. We believe in the transformative potential of children's literature, popular culture and creativity in educating people at all stages of life. We are theorists and practitioners, developing new teaching methods as part of our research, and exploring creative methods of data gathering and analysis.

Our research has such wide-ranging fields of expertise as Shakespeare in education, literary translation in the classroom, poetry teaching, existentialist theorisations of children's picturebooks and Gothic monsters in Japanese popular culture.
