Centre for Research and Enterprise in Language

The Centre for Research and Enterprise in Language (CREL) at the University of Greenwich is a cross-disciplinary space for the study of language.

CREL is a multidisciplinary setting for the study of language that fosters research of international excellence and impact through collaboration, knowledge-exchange, training and mentorship. CREL hosts researchers from the areas of Linguistics, Applied Linguistics, Literature, Creative Writing, Psychology, Education, Sociology, Speech and Language Therapy and Mathematics and Computing. Collaboration across these disciplines enables the integration of insights from quantitative and cognitive analyses in the research of language and literature and enhances overall pathways to impact in, for example, education or speech and language therapy.
