The School of Advanced Study is the UK's national research hub in the humanities and offers a world-class research environment to our research students. We run a range of research training programmes, open to all postgraduate students, as well as an active public engagement calendar. The School is part of the AHRC-funded London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP), through which we are able to offer a number of studentships in humanities disciplines.
The Institute's research strength lies in its combination of the study of several language fields: French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
Its academic staff specialise in literature, cultural studies, history of ideas and comparative studies: the city (especially Berlin, Trieste), borders, the body, psychoanalysis, gender and sexuality, feminism, women's writing, Jewish writing, exile writing, children's literature, etc.
Because of its function as a centre for academic events in European culture, the Institute has national and international contacts with researchers in its fields. The Insitute is thus particularly well placed to offer supervision for projects that cross national and disciplinary boundaries.
