About the Humanities Research Centre

Based in the beautiful Berrick Saul Building at the University of York, the HRC is an interdisciplinary hub for research in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at York.

Professor Richard Ogden

The University of York has invested more in the arts and humanities in the past decade than any other English university, and the Humanities Research Centre sits at the heart of that investment, providing a spectacular place of interdisciplinary belonging for arts and humanities academics and postgraduates.

We’re proud of the dynamic research culture, friendliness and imaginative, forward-thinking approach of the Humanities Research Centre and we look forward to welcoming you to it.

Professor Richard Ogden, Director
