School of English and Drama


The Department has contributed successfully to the establishing and running of a range of influential projects.

We were the host institution for the AHRC Beyond Text research theme between 2007 and 2011, and The King’s Printer Project, directed by the late Professor Graham Rees. We are currently spearheading the Creativeworks London project.

Creativeworks London

Creativeworks London is a project to bring creative people together to explore the issues that impact on London’s creative economy and to facilitate exciting new collaborations.

The School of English and Drama is delighted to be spearheading a three-year, multi-million pound project to build new partnerships and commercial opportunities between academia and the ‘Creative Economy’ of London, which comprises artistic industries, museums, libraries, and other cultural institutions.
The director of Queen Mary's Knowledge Exchange Hub is Faculty Vice-Principal, and Professor of Cultural History, Morag Shiach. Also working on this project are three post-doctoral researchers: Mariza Dima, Tarek Virani, and Gerard Briscoe.
