The research culture of the Department is strong, and at its core lies an active group of postgraduate students, who are pursuing a wide range of projects. This range defies simple definition, either in terms of historical or conceptual scope, so the best way to find out about what we do is to browse through the current and completed  thesis projects and the description of staff interests available from the staff page .

This section of the English, Creative Writing, and Australian Studies web site is intended to serve as a departmental postgraduate handbook. Consequently, it addresses two audiences: currently enrolled postgraduates, and those who think they might be interested in becoming postgraduate researchers in the Department.
