centre: Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH)

About the centre:

CRASSH was founded in 2001, with the aim of creating a new focus for disciplinary innovation and, in particular, interdisciplinary dialogues across the full spectrum of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. In 2011, the Centre will move into a purpose-built new building on the University's main Humanities site. We support the work of scholars at all career levels, from graduate researchers onwards, and encourage interaction across those levels. CRASSH is now known nationally and internationally as a centre of excellence for such work.
