    This post might be in the wrong place. Sorry about this, I'm unsure of where to put it up.
    There's a professor in the University of Manchester who's working in an area I'm interested in. It's about poetry in translation in the UK. I'd love to be a part of this project.
    I'm currently in my second year of university. I'm doing an interdisciplinary humanities course in India. As a result, I don't possess an in-depth knowledge of too much poetry, but I don't mind the extra work.
    Does anyone know the right way to go about initiating contact? Do I contact the university/ professor off my own bat? Is that acceptable? Or do I have to go via my university and official channels?
    Secondly, what type of work can I give as samples?

    Thank you in advance
