The Research School of Humanities & the Arts serves as a vibrant hub which brings together a community of dedicated staff and students who work across a wide array of disciplines. Our collaborative approach encourages the convergence of various perspectives, bridging theory and practice to inspire intellectual curiosity and spark innovation.

Our researchers are recognised globally as leaders within their fields, producing fundamental humanities research through rigorous inquiry and critical analysis, uncovering new insights, challenging existing paradigms, and adding depth to our collective knowledge.

We work closely with national cultural institutions, government bodies, and industry stakeholders, actively participating in public debates, informing policy initiatives, and developing human-centered design and technology.
