Research interests

Vesna Goldsworthy's research interests encompass the practice of fiction and creative non-fiction, especially the memoir and the hybrid forms. She is particularly interested in the intersections of creativity, national and transnational identity, and in writing outside the mother tongue. 

Her former PhD students are both creative writing practitioners and English literature academics.

 

Research collaborations

Vesna Goldsworthy is supervising five Creative Writing PhD projects at the University of East Anglia. Three are full length novels; and two works of creative non-fiction -- one focusing on the notion of terroir, one investigating creative responses to motherhood.
