The Institute for Humanities Research

The humanities play a vital role in society, ensuring the well-being of individuals, communities and our democratic institutions through a deep understanding of how human beings have shaped their lives, their traditions, customs and cultures to forge futures that foster human dignity and agency. The Institute for Humanities Research provides a platform for research and conversations about those issues fundamental to us all.
