We are the English department at Liverpool John Moores University in the UK, based in the imposing John Foster Building on Liverpool’s Mount Pleasant as part of LJMU’s School of Humanities and Social Science. We comprise 22 academic colleagues, all of whom are engaged in both teaching and research; around 600 undergraduate students taking English for at least half of their programme; and a thriving community of postgraduates. This site aims to introduce you to everything we do: our teaching, our research activities, and the events we organise and contribute to, in Liverpool and beyond. Whether you are interested in applying to study or work with us, or seeking more information on our research and publications, we hope you find everything you need here. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions.
