Research lies at the centre of Arts and Humanities at Durham, from our research-led teaching to our individual and collaborative research. We work with colleagues across disciplinary boundaries, with particular strengths in collaboration with science and social science. Medical and Environmental Humanities sit alongside Visual Arts and Culture, History of Science, and Medieval, Early Modern, and Modern Studies. Our resources for research are considerable, with world-class special collections; our engagement through our departments, centres, institutes, and cultural partnerships, Arts and Humanities is wide-ranging with local, national, and international impact. Our research culture is lively, cross-disciplinary, enriched by our active postgraduate and postdoctoral research communities, and articulated through a rich array of activities, from seminars and conferences, to performances and public events.

The Faculty is home to sixteen interdisciplinary research centres and is key to the work of several University research institutes — the Institute of Advanced Study, the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, the Institute of Medical Humanities, and the Institute of Hazard, Risk, and Resilience.
