Welcome to the Humanities and Social Sciences Research


The Faculty has a vibrant research community of over 200 academic staff and 300 postgraduate research students, working within, and in some cases across, dedicated Research Centres and Schools.  On these pages you will find information about our current research staff and students, a showcase of the best of our research projects, publications and other outcomes, and examples of how we put our knowledge to work for the benefit of society.

We are proud of our diverse and supportive research culture. So, whether you are a current member of staff, or postgraduate research student, or are considering joining our growing community, or just want to see what we do and join in the conversation, then please enjoy these pages.  If you would like to get in touch, please email Scott McCracken
