Dr Christopher Stokes

Senior Lecturer in English Literature

Hello – I’m Dr Christopher Stokes, and I’d like to welcome you to English at the University of Exeter’s vibrant, friendly and beautiful Penryn Campus!

If you decide to accept our offer you’ll be joining our English programme in the Humanities Department, and we think you’ll love getting to know Cornwall and the rich, wonderful range of literature that we study here.

We offer a distinctive programme in a community where you’ll be well-known to your tutors and to each other: you can expect to be nurtured towards the best possible degree result and a career after university that might be in the creative industries, journalism, publishing, the heritage sector, teaching, or virtually any area of your choosing.

English is a broad subject, embracing everything from Shakespeare to modern cinema, Romantic poetry to Harry Potter, and you’ll study towards a qualification that includes skills of self-presentation, writing and research.
