Course summary

Based within the School of Social Sciences and Humanities, academic staff in Humanities are active researchers, working within and across the disciplinary boundaries of English, publishing, and art history and visual culture.

Humanities has two main disciplinary areas that share the values traditionally constituting humanities studies: English with specialisms, and art history and visual culture with specialisms. Humanities also houses a Centre for Doctorial Training: Feminism, Sexual Politics and Visual Culture.

In a period of instability and rapid change characterising the early 21st century, we seek to find new ways of connecting humanities research with the problems facing society while affirming shared human experiences. We favour interdisciplinary research projects that reach across the units in the School of Social Sciences and Humanities, and we also collaborate with research units in other schools.

You will have full access to a range of outstanding learning and teaching facilities, including dedicated social and informal study areas, state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and a variety of offices and teaching rooms for seminars and small group activities.

You will be supported by expert staff with a diverse range of research interests and experience.
