The University of Brighton fosters a thriving research culture across its disciplines with a major impact on scholarship, professional practice and the wider community. The organisation has pursued an explicit strategy of disciplinary and interdisciplinary research, inter-relating critical theory, contemporary practices and their histories. Research students are welcomed through the university's Doctoral College.
We have, through the evolution of a first-class research environment, generated fresh fields of interdisciplinary enquiry stimulating insights that question current practices and foster new understandings. We promote research excellence and support individual and collaborative research initiatives that, through productive enterprise networks, help to enhance society's understanding of human culture and creativity, past and present.
Professor of linguistics Raf Salkie specialises in modality and in corpus-based approaches to language acquisition and development.
