Humanities Research Institute (HRI)

The HRI is the faculty’s centre for interdisciplinary collaborative research. It acts as an umbrella for all the faculty’s research centres and other research centres which involve faculty participation.

Our mission is to promote interdisciplinary collaborations within the Faculty of Humanities, and between humanities scholars and colleagues across the University, and externally.

The HRI supports cross-disciplinary collaborations by running workshops and networking events, liaising with research centres and hosting visiting fellows.
