Institute of Humanities

Welcome to the website of the Institute of Humanities

All members of the Humanities Department at Northumbria University, graduate students and academic staff alike, are members of the Institute of Humanities. It exists physically as a group of dedicated rooms in Lipman Building (first floor, around Lipman 121), and virtually as a set of cross-disciplinary academic practices. It is also an intellectual ideal that guides our research.

Academic seminars and conferences, public events, and social gatherings take place in the Institute, and space to work is provided for graduate students and visiting scholars. This is where we come together to exchange ideas, both with each other and with interested people from beyond the Department and the university. The moment we enter the Institute, our conversation begins.

We will keep these webpages up to date with news of our research and publications and of events taking place within the Institute, so please visit regularly.
