Each academic year we support a range of interdisciplinary research projects and researchers through our flagship Sadler Seminar Series and other schemes. From our base at the heart of the University campus we also host a large community of Postdoctoral Research Fellows and visiting researchers, with meeting and seminar rooms available to book.
For arts and humanities researchers based at the University of Leeds our LAHRI and Culture Hub offers research development resources, including internal and external funding opportunities, examples of successful bids, and guidance about research impact and ethics.
We collaborate closely with the Cultural Institute, who develop and support partnerships with the cultural and creative sectors, and work with other interdisciplinary research Institutes and Centres across the University.
We are a member of the international Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes and the UK-wide Consortium of Institutes of Advanced Studies, contributing to the development and promotion of arts and humanities research nationally and globally.
The Institute is housed in Clothworkers’ Building South, directly opposite Leeds University Union. We provide flexible work space for our community of Postdoctoral Research Fellows in our Hub on the ground floor, as well as two bookable third-floor seminar rooms with magnificent views across the city.
