The School of Critical Studies has a long history of excellence in research, promoted by a distinguished body of internationally recognised scholars and a vital community of research students. This is confirmed by excellent evaluations, growing grant capture as well as strong impact and esteem indicators. The School's research culture includes post/doctoral scholars, distinguished honorary research fellows and visiting academics. The School's research portfolio is diverse and multi-disciplinary, and is closely articulated with research-led teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Regular seminars, reading groups, and distinguished visiting speakers enhance the research environment.
Research takes place across the School’s diverse but interrelated subject areas. Although research is often conducted individually, or thematised in Centres and Networks, much of it is concentrated on the following research clusters across the School:
The School hosts four research centres/networks:-

While much research is conducted by individual scholars, a mutually supportive interdisciplinary culture is fostered across the School, across and beyond the College of Arts, and through Arts Lab. Through these and other initiatives, Critical Studies engages in five of the College's designated research themes: Culture and Creativity, Landscape and Environment, Medical Humanities, Digital Humanities and Scottish Studies Global. These cross-School and cross-College initiatives are designed to articulate with research themes supported by the AHRC, ESRC, Wellcome and other external funding bodies.
