News from the School of Language, Literature, Music and Visual Culture
I am delighted to welcome you to the inaugural edition of Northern Light, the Newsletter of the School of Language, Literature, Music and Visual Culture. I hope you find it a stimulating insight into the wide range of research and teaching activities we undertake. We are a thriving community of scholars working across a range of disciplines, including English, Linguistics, Modern Languages, Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Studies, Music and Film and Visual Culture. The diversity of our interests are reflected in our extensive range of taught postgraduate programmes; our undergraduate courses attract around 1,000 students per year. The School is also home to a number of research centres, including the Centre for the Novel, the Washington Wilson Centre for Visual Culture, the WORD Centre for Creative Writing, and the Centre for Linguistic Research, as well as the Elphinstone Institute, with its distinctive focus on the culture of the North East and North of Scotland. We look forward to welcoming you to Aberdeen soon, whether as a future student, a fellow academic or an interested visitor.
Edward Welch, Head of School
