Centre for Advanced Studies for the Arts and Social Sciences
The Centre for Advanced Studies for the Arts and Social Sciences (CAS) was established in January 2010 and marks the beginning of an exciting new phase in the development of Nottingham’s world-changing research culture in Arts and Social Sciences.
The University has committed to creating a dedicated building for CAS. This building, due to open in September 2012, will offer:
facilities for post-doctoral fellows, visiting fellows and internal fellows

research and business development team for Arts and Social Sciences
Visiting fellowships and post-doctoral bursaries
A programme of visiting fellowships attract the very best scholars and industry leaders to spend time at Nottingham to both challenge and work with the academic community in developing research focused on the CAS annual themes. This is complemented by a programme of post-doctoral bursaries to attract excellent early career researchers to Nottingham.
