The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities is dedicated to high level research in a range of humanities disciplines with a focus on Intellectual and Literary History, Critical and Cultural Studies, the History of Emotions, and Science and Society.

It has a core of permanent research-focused academics and postdoctoral researchers working on specific projects, and hosts short stay Faculty and Visiting Fellows.

IASH researchers actively engage in public fora by providing comment, articles, and media interviews, and by participating in public events. They collaborate locally and internationally as co-investigators on grants and through the organisation of research colloquia and conferences and the production of edited publications.
