Description
The Institute provides strategic leadership at Queen’s to support and enhance world class interdisciplinary research in the Humanities at all levels, from postgraduate training and early career research through to the development of large-scale collaborative research projects of exceptional scope and importance. It encourages and promotes cross-School, cross-Faculty and inter-institutional collaboration that leads to high-quality research outputs with significant impact on society.

Humanities research at Queen’s encompasses a wide range of disciplines, including core research activities in the Schools of Creative Arts, English, History and Anthropology, and Modern Languages and strands of work in other Schools including PISP, Law, SSPSW and GAP. In addition to supporting innovative research collaborations across these Schools, the Institute encourages cross-campus research collaborations with colleagues from all branches of the social, natural and physical sciences and with professional subjects, as appropriate.

The Institute identifies opportunities for training, mentoring, and knowledge-exchange across the Humanities, thereby enhancing postgraduate employability and career prospects as well as contributing to the social and economic well-being of all communities with whom researchers in Humanities at Queen’s might connect, from the local to the global.
