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

Centre for Health, Medical and Environmental Humanities

The MA in Health, Cultures and Societies is the master’s programme counterpart to the interdisciplinary research and activity of the University of Liverpool’s Centre for Health, Medical and Environmental Humanities. Spanning three faculties, the Centre for Health, Medical and Environmental Humanities supports researchers working at the intersections of the natural and social sciences, arts and humanities.  It fosters opportunities for inter- and transdisciplinary work, while promoting disciplinary contributions.

The Centre comprises five themes which work in collaboration to generate a series of talks, seminars, exhibitions/displays and symposia, provide opportunities for public engagement and dissemination, support funding applications, postgraduate and early career development.
