School of Arts, Languages and Cultures


World-leading research in human cultures, languages, beliefs and institutions.

Our work embraces the material, visual, linguistic, textual, social and performative dimensions of human society, past and present.

Our research ranges from pre-historic times, through the classical and medieval periods, to the contemporary era.

Disciplines are organised into seven divisions with each encompassing broad areas of intersecting expertise.

At the hub of our research is The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Arts and Languages (CIDRAL), which facilitates cross-disciplinary activities and exchanges throughout the school and beyond.
