Theme Leader: Lucy Taylor (

This research theme explores the ways in which Wales is positioned: in time, in space, in representation and in the global context. It draws together academics working in Arts and Humanities, as well as Social Sciences, and aims to promote innovative, interdisciplinary research. As such, the theme spans a range of different approaches, from archival study to creative expression and encompasses the study of material conditions, practices and theory.
