The Transcultural Writing, Practice and Research Network links creative practioners, academics and Lancaster University’s postgraduate student community to extensive research activity in creative transcultural practices and their impact on society.  We research and promote writing and artistic practices across cultures and study their transformational impact on society and global relations.

The network encompasses research-as-practice, action-research projects, study of historical and contemporary creative practice, the innovative application of digital technologies and the interrelationship between writing, art and social change. We promote critical, pedagogical and theoretical accounts of praxis with special emphasis on cultural exchange between practitioners and with social and political institutions.
