Research in the School

Our research spans a large variety of fields, and is notable for its collaborative, interdisciplinary and innovative nature. In all departments there is a particular focus on issues of social justice, on pressing questions of ethics and politics, and on making academic research important to the wider community.

The research conducted by our staff has an international reach, and we performed well in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). The school holds a number of substantial funded research projects, with grants gained from the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Wellcome Trust, the Leverhulme Trust, the European Research Council (ERC), and other bodies.
