Humanities Research Opportunities

Below we have listed some broad areas of research that reflect the School’s research strengths and long-term strategic aims, as articulated in our REF Environment statement. Specific projects can be suggested for each area if required.

We actively encourage projects that are interdisciplinary in scope, and supervisory teams could include colleagues from Schools and Departments outside Humanities. Staff expertise covers many areas (please see staff research profiles) but the following are some of our areas of strength:


  • British, Irish and American Literature from 1870 to 1945


  • Sixteenth and Seventeenth-Century British and Irish History 
  • Twentieth-Century British and Irish History


  • Pastoral Theology
  • Biblical hermeneutics
  • Spirituality and liturgy
  • African and Asian Christianity

Philosophy & Ethics

  • Continental Philosophy

Politics & International Relations

  •  War and Peace studies

Religious Studies

  • African and Asian Christianity
