Members of the University of Birmingham are undertaking a range of research projects in Popular and Genre Fiction.

Muslim Women’s Popular Fiction Network

An AHRC-funded research network, led by Dr Amy Burge, focusing on writing by women deemed ‘popular’ rather than ‘literary’, this network engages with under-studied popular and genre texts (including romance, chick lit, comics, graphic novels, detective fiction, Young Adult, fantasy, autobiography, memoir, and science fiction) from a range of established critical disciplinary perspectives and across languages.
