Cultures and Societies research
Research and Innovation
Impact and engagement
Our research in the area of Cultures and Societies helps individuals and communities to understand and navigate their culture and heritage. Our projects range across the globe and from antiquity to the present day. Key examples include understanding the potential of Hercules as a cross-cultural icon, using participatory film-making techniques to develop skills and ambitions amongst vulnerable young people in South Africa, and helping post-colonial communities in Paris and North Africa to uncover their hidden pasts.
