Screens, Languages, English and Writing (SLEW)

The Screens, Languages, English and Writing cluster coordinates scholarly collaborations in the areas of Film, Media & Cultural Studies, Modern Languages, Digital Humanities, and English & Writing.

Our team of people both create works of literature and study the manifold ways such works are produced and distributed in different media over time.

In the Bachelor of Arts and Diploma in Languages we provide study pathways in languages such as French, German, Japanese and Chinese from beginner to advanced levels. From open access courses through to PhD research, SLEW advances unique opportunities to analyse diverse media in the context of their distinctive languages.

Our research nexuses include the Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing as well as the Early Modern Women Research Network in the Centre for 21st Century Humanities. We also collaborate with the Gender Research Network, which is a key contributor to the 16 Days of Activism to End Violence against Women campaign in Newcastle.
