About us

School of Histories, Languages and Cultures

The School was formed in 2010 as part of a major reorganization of the academic structures across the University. Five departments covering more than a dozen subject areas joined together to make up the School. In our research and in our teaching we explore culture and society from the origins of humanity to modern day politics.

We are a community of scholars working across a vast number of disciplines and united by our research interests in history and heritage, languages and literatures, and power, conflict and conflict resolution.

The School undertakes the following areas of study:-

  • History
  • Irish Studies
  • Politics
  • Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology
  • Cultures, Languages and Area Studies
  • Archives and Records Management

Institute of Irish Studies

The Institute of Irish Studies is the only centre of its kind in Britain and is internationally renowned for its teaching and research.

We take a broad, multidisciplinary approach to the subject. Our research-active staff pursue highly innovative research and publish acclaimed books and academic articles.

Postgraduate students are valued members of our community and enjoy excellent facilities, teaching and support, as well as full involvement in our research activities.

In 2007 the Irish government recognised our contribution to Anglo-Irish and inter-Irish understanding by funding the Tony Blair chair.
