Last week the School celebrated its 30th anniversary at a special celebration attended by the University's Chancellor, HRH The Princess Royal.

Speaking of the role the School has played in supporting and championing humanities research, as well as looking to the future, Professor Jo Fox, Dean of the School, said:

“The world has changed a great deal since the School was formed in 1994 […] And while our world may be more connected than ever before, it is also a more divided, more fraught, and in many ways, a more precarious one.

“A critical, creative, and human approach is not only valuable in addressing [these] global challenges – it is indispensable. The humanities offer not only diagnoses, but increasingly we offer solutions. We see this every day in the research we support across the UK.

“We will continue to champion and provide a home for groundbreaking research, strengthen our local and international partnerships, widen participation across our disciplines, and further the cause of humanities to understand ourselves and each other.

“In doing so we will equip future generations with the skills to answer the most pressing issues of today and tomorrow.”

On June 8 1023, King C**t took a bath – in which he also achieved the dubious honour of being the first person recorded in English history to have been disturbed by something frustratingly urgent just as he had stepped into a bath. But what can a bath, taken 1,000 years ago, tell us about the conflicted English kingdom of a millennium ago? Dr Simon Trafford, Lecturer in Medieval History in the Institute of Historical Research, explains in The Conversation.
