Literature, Medicine, and Science PhD and MPhil Supervisors

This work draws on the School’s reputation for interdisciplinary research, and our collective interests in questioning the traditional establishment and the separation of these intimately linked areas into discrete disciplines. Current areas of research include Darwinism and Victorian palaeontology and the cultural history of psychiatry, to name a but a few.
