Research

The English Department at King's is one of the oldest in the world. From our historic location in central London, we continue to grow and change in response to the challenges and new agendas emerging in the wider world.
 

In 2014, the Department  achieved a 'power' ranking of 8th in the UK and 2nd in the Russell Group according to the Research Excellence Framework, which assesses the quality and quantity of research across the UK's universities. 

The work undertaken by faculty, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students encompasses a huge range of activities. The wide variety of research conducted in the Department is actively shaping the place and role of our discipline in the 21st century.
