Research in the Arts

The academic community at The University of Nottingham continues to produce world-changing research by focusing on the problems and challenges that affect societies and people on a wide scale. Achieving this involves:

  • developing ideas and creating discoveries
  • exchanging knowledge which generates real economic, social, environmental and cultural impact

The Faculty of Arts contribute to the University’s vision, aims and objectives in a number of ways, and through a wide variety of research projects.

At present, I have been awarded as a Project Investigator or co-Investigator over £3m--with more grants in process or pending. My team is based in the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies. In addition to the above team, I am a co-Director of the Centre for Research in Race and Rights (with Professors Zoe Trodd and Sharon Monteith). I am also the lead on the soon to be implemented PhD in Black Studies -affiliated with C3R, the Department of American and Canadian Studies and the Rights and Justice Research Priority Area. Finally, I have a cross-Faculty role as academic lead on the establishment of a transnational Liberal Arts degree programme. This role involves my working closely with the Faculty PVCs for Science and for Arts, amongst others.
