Collaborative Research and Engagement with the Community – both local and international – are the hallmarks of much of the research work of the school.

Our research ranges from projects funded by Australian and overseas government and industry bodies to improve language teaching and language proficiency testing, to the highly acclaimed Prison Shakespeare Project with collaborative partners in the US and Italy.

School researchers are the holders of numerous prestigious national and international academic awards and prizes including four Fellows of the Australian Academy of the Humanities.
