Collaborative research with Higher Education partners

We participate in many collaborative research activities in the Arts & Humanities and in the Social Sciences. We have Independent Research Organisation status with the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Below are some examples of our collaborative research activity.

AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships

Current arts and humanities doctoral activity is taking place under the AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships programme. This provides funds for six doctoral studentships each year for three years, and commenced in 2013.


Arts and Humanities Doctoral Research at the Library

Our collections encompass all fields of knowledge, overall all formats, in hundreds of languages, covering 3500 years from some of the earliest written records to the digital collections of the present day.


MA in Early Modern English Literature

A unique course taught in partnership with King’s College London, which provides the opportunity to study early modern literary works, including Shakespeare, in light of recent critical approaches and as print and manuscript material artefacts.

A 3-year project with Royal Holloway University of London to develop a database of material relating to the Italian learned Academies of Bologna, Naples, Padua and Siena between 1530 – 1650.
