Details about the research interests of individual members of the Faculty may be found here

A repository of research publications produced by members of the Faculty may be found here.

The Faculty has its own informal collaboration with the departments of philosophy at MIT and Harvard, known as ‘Cambridge2’. 

The School of Arts & Humanities does not have its own Research Ethics committee, but the School Office keeps a record of the approval requested, and passes it on to the relevant Research Ethics Committee in another School. Please contact (Faculty Administrator) about any queries relating to ethical approval.
