Profile Information

Founded in 2019, the Centre for International Contemporary Poetry promotes research related to contemporary poetry from post-WWII to the present day. It comprises a team of renowned academics and creative writers whose work engages with contemporary poetry in English, and foreign language poetry which has impacted contemporary English-language poetry, in a global, transdisciplinary, and transtemporal context. Building upon the success of the university’s Ted Hughes Network and the Brontë Stones Project, the Centre provides an intellectual space that seeks to foster dialogue amongst a diverse range of scholars and practitioners, including those in the fields of music, fine arts, and architecture. Through its sponsored readings, lectures, symposia, seminars, engagement with the community, and internationally recognized research, the Centre brings together those who are interested in exploring all forms of contemporary poetry and its intersection with issues such as the environment, gender, race, aging, war and violence. The Centre is also home to the University of Huddersfield’s in-house press, GRIST, which publishes leading writers along with emerging voices. The research produced by the Centre has already led to pioneering creative and scholarly approaches to contemporary poetry on the international stage. The Centre welcomes interest from MA and PhD students.
