Promoting literary research across our degree programmes and communities

Literature at UHI brings together researchers from across the Highlands and Islands who explore literary texts, adaptations, drama and non-fiction.

We are based at Inverness, Perth and Lews Castle College UHI , and our lecturers are active researchers, teachers and practitioners. We promote literary research across our undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, and we work with local communities on a variety of public engagement programmes. We are also involved in knowledge exchanges with museums, archives, libraries and heritage bodies.

Our research explores a number of key themes and issues: we have strengths in particular periods (Renaissance to Contemporary), genres (Science Fiction, Nature Writing, Spy Fiction, Drama, Cinema, Adaptations, Gothic, Poetry) and themes (gender, identity, place, theory, philosophy, history).
