Humanities Research Institute

We catalyse, coordinate and support research in humanities at Newcastle. We promote humanities both within and beyond the University.

We support strategic themes, host workshops, symposia and events. Our audiences include academics, research partners and the public.

The Institute champions interdisciplinary research. We encourage researchers to reach beyond home disciplines. We want them to collaborate with like-minded scholars who:

  • share their passion for a topic
  • want to address a challenge

We enrich research when scholars of different disciplines share their skills and knowledge. We produce research of the highest quality.
