We have an excellent research environment and also host major research projects relating to both contemporary and earlier periods. Researchers are supported by the excellent resources of the University Library, and have easy access to record offices and libraries in the region.

Students have access to working space and to computing facilities in the postgraduate suites shared with postgraduates in other related disciplines, through the College of Arts and Law Graduate School.

In addition to regular supervision, research seminars give staff and postgraduates the opportunity to present their findings, to discuss methods and results, and to meet and to hear papers from visiting scholars.
