The Poetics Research Centre has links, through its members, with the Living Sustainably Research Catalyst at Royal Holloway, the Centre for Victorian Studies and the Centre for Visual Cultures, as well as a wide range of publishers, communities and organisations. Members played key roles in the Royal Holloway COP26 Forum activities that took place online and in person in November 2021 to accompany the Glasgow talks.

We are keen to foster relationships that contribute to an engaged humanities, and to develop the important role that creative practice and thinking can play in exploring, questioning and making connections to address the issues of our times.

We welcome enquiries about partnerships and collaborations, whether from councils, community groups or charities, or from arts, research and policy institutions.

Please in the first instance contact the director of the Poetics Research Centre,
