Research in the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies

The school's three research departments are among the top research units in the country. While most of our research is undertaken in our own specialist areas, we have a number of School-wide initiatives, such as Research Centres, Research Groups and Journals which bring members of different departments together in a collaborative process.
