The School is at the forefront of networking activity nationally and internationally, both at subject level and through its leading role as the UK's national centre for the support and promotion of research in the humanities and social sciences.

    The School’s activities help to foster strong research networks within and across disciplines in order to provide opportunities to develop new research initiatives, collaborations in preparing funding bids and promotion and dissemination of high-quality research nationally and internationally.
