About Research in the Humanities
The Department of Humanities is critically engaged with questions surrounding culture, media, literature, history, performance, creative writing and politics. We have a longstanding reputation in all of our subjects and our staff are active researchers at the highest level. Staff within Humanities will contribute to the Communication, Cultural and Media Studies unit of assessment in the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
We have recently made considerable investment in our physical resources, which includes modern purpose built facilities and some of the very latest in new technologies. These are supplemented by our excellent links and partnerships with industry and the professional world. In choosing to undertake research at Derby, we believe in preparing you for your future career, and enhancing your current career, by enabling you to secure the relevant knowledge, skills, abilities and contacts. In the sections which follow, you will find a brief guide to these opportunities.
