Issue 130

At Research Outreach, we are proud to distil cutting-edge research from across the sciences and beyond. In this issue, we continue to broaden our focus, asking mind-expanding questions about the nature of consciousness, the beauty of language, and the vital importance of sleep. With several articles devoted to the environment, we also ask: how might we compassionately and responsibly inhabit the Earth at a time of ecological unravelling?

Nicholas Royle is Professor of Literature at the University of Sussex, and Founding Director of The Centre for Creative and Critical Thought. His seminal Introduction to Literature, Criticism and Theory offers a sustained interrogation of culture, art, and creativity, inspiring countless students and readers. We were fortunate to speak to Royle about the changing nature of literary study.

Will Hall is a highly influential mental health educator, writer, researcher, and therapist, who is changing the way we approach psychiatric treatment. Drawing upon his own experiences of psychiatric drugs, Hall is working tirelessly to instigate a system that prioritises compassion over thoughtless prescription. We spoke to him about the state of contemporary psychiatry.

As always, we hope you are as excited, challenged, and inspired as we are by issue 130. We welcome responses to any of the research contained within our articles through our social media channels!
