Research and innovation
As a large and diverse School, our academic expertise is broad and we are committed to active research across a range of specialist areas.
Our personal tutor and peer mentoring schemes, as well as our regular seminar series and events, encourage active engagement with research from both staff and students across the School. We take a collaborative approach to research and work closely with partners including other academic schools as well as external organisations, making use of the rich resources on hand in Leeds, both at the university and in the wider area.
We are also part of a number of affiliated research groups, working closely with other Schools across the University.
Our research is clustered into six over-arching themes bringing together a variety of research projects.
The Politics, Diplomacy and International History cluster brings together researchers with a shared interest in international affairs.More on Politics, Diplomacy and International History
In GLAM we work with external partners in the Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums sectors.More on Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums
