Research overview

Emily Spiers is Lecturer in Creative Futures. Her work focuses on future-oriented, innovative trends in communicative and literary practices, and explores how preferable futures are being envisaged, anticipated and made through art and literature.

Her research into authorship focuses on spoken-word poetry as an aesthetic and political practice, and as a world literary phenomenon. Underpinning her work is the question of how authors ‘embody’ literature, in their performances, biographical person and their literary texts. She also investigates the ways in which performances become circulated digitally within and across cultural contexts, either by artists seeking alternative methods of dissemination that confound the economics of the publishing and music industries, or by fan communities.
