‘Words Matter’ is our Literature Programme blog, a dedicated space for our students, staff and alumni. Check here for the latest news on forth-coming events and for opinion, commentary and reviews by your peers on the programme.

We are therefore interested in exploring what literature can tell us about identity, politics and culture.
