Welcome to the Research Institute for Social Sciences
Keele's Research Institute for Social Sciences brings together over 170 academic staff and over 200 postgraduate students working across a range of social science disciplines. Staff and research students are grouped within five Research Centres, providing a focus for seminars, grant activity, and research support and supervision.
In RAE 2008 85-95% of research across the main areas submitted was judged to be of international quality. Members of the Research Institute currently hold major grants from the Economic and Social Research Council, the Medical Research Council, the British Academy and the European Union. The RI welcomes researchers from across the University and beyond to attend the regular programme of seminars, conferences and workshops advertised elsewhere on this site. We look forward to seeing you.
