Organisation profile

Authors & the World is an interdisciplinary research hub that brings together Anglophone and non-Anglophone writers, translators, publishers, editors, reviewers and researchers from a broad sweep of disciplines in the Arts and Humanities. Staff in Lancaster associated with the hub come from the departments of European Languages & Culture, Contemporary Arts (LICA), English & Creative Writing, Linguistics & English Language, Politics, Philosophy & Religious Studies, and the HighWire Doctoral Training Centre.

Our programme of research currently has three main emphases: literary celebrity (begun in 2014), translation (begun in 2015), the digital (begun in 2016). All of our work is underpinned by in-depth analysis of a variety of different cultural contexts and a wide range of genres and media.

You can follow our debates and access the materials we generate online at www.authorsandtheworld.com, on our facebook page ('Authors and the World'), and via twitter: @AuthorsWorld.
