Arts and Humanities Research Council
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) supports world-class research that furthers our understanding of human culture and creativity.
The AHRC funds research on a very wide range of subjects, from traditional humanities such as history, English, linguistics, French and other modern languages, philosophy and classics, area and interdisciplinary studies to creative and performing arts such as drama, dance, music, art and design.
Research into these subjects helps us to interpret peoples experiences, probe identities, interrogate cultural assumptions and understand historical, social, economic and political context. It adds to the economic success of the UK, through its contributions to the knowledge economy and innovation agenda. The research funded by the AHRC leads to improvements in social and intellectual capital, community identity, learning skills, technological evolution and the quality of life of the nation.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
