Our researchers are recognised internationally for their work in the role of the unconscious mind in mental health, as well as in culture and society generally.
We are able to offer research supervision in the fields below, but this list is not exhaustive so let us know if you would like to research in an area that's not listed.
We foster creative, new ways of looking at our research areas, and our top quality research is evidence of this.
We're surrounded by strong departments that support our work. We work closely with the Departments of Sociology, Literature, Film and Theatre Studies, the Schools of Philosophy and Art History and Health and Human Sciences, Essex Business School, Centre for Theoretical Studies and Interdisciplinary Studies Centre.
