Humanities Research Institute



We organise events throughout the year, ranging from public lectures to small research 'sandpits'.

A presentation as part of the Freedom City events held at the University.

We run events in partnership with the Institutes for Creative Arts Practice and Social Science. These events tend to focus on issues common to academics in the Faculty.

Other events bring together researchers to focus on particular ideas or problems.

We aim to engage the full community of researchers. This includes:

  • students
  • early career researchers
  • academics of national and international standing
  • partners from outside universities 

If you have an idea for an event for NUHRI to host or co-organise, contact the Institute’s Director, Professor Jennifer Richards.
