The Research Centre was formally opened in Autumn 2006 with support from the University, the Division of English and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW).
The website was created in February 2007 to offer all researchers, lecturers, and postgraduates interested in the interdisciplinary study of literature, arts and science a single online source for scholarship, information, events, and contacts.
