The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is home to world-class researchers working on incredibly exciting and important projects. At its heart, our research examines what it means to be human but crucially it draws in other disciplinary approaches outside of traditional humanities.

This page draws attention to research that is tackling tough, relevant questions about how we lived in the past and how we live today. Academics from the Arts and Humanities can offer unique perspectives and insights on these topics by drawing on a wealth of interdisciplinary approaches.
