Humanities Research Centre Workshop Series 2018/19

The Humanities Research Centre invites expressions of interest from academic staff, PhD students, postdoctoral and teaching fellows across the Arts Faculty whose current work intersects with our annual theme. A group of ten participants will meet twice per term over lunch on Fridays (12-2 pm), with a final day-long public event to conclude the series in the summer. Members will be expected to attend all sessions, which will run as work-in-progress seminars for the discussion of individual research as well as wider issues in the field. Places will come with a £500 research account each and be allocated with a view to optimizing the range of perspectives and expertise within the group.

Spectrum - Call for Articles

 Spectrum – Issue 1


Do you have an interesting research project, event, or series you’d like to describe in 200-500 words? Spectrum – the newly named HRC newsletter – is looking for contributions for the 2018-19 edition. Our aim is to have this glossy, paper publication (you can find it by the elevator) broadcast as widely as possible the range of our research interests and achievements across the humanities. We welcome short, punchy pieces that capture this spirit and showcase our work.

We are also looking to do a feature on newly appointed Warwick humanities staff, so we’ll be looking for the names of people who started their posts in January or are due to do so in August.

Please send your contributions along by the end of Term 3 to

Publications with Routledge and Anthem Press

The HRC now has two book series showcasing the best current work in the faculty.

Warwick Series in the Humanities (with Routledge)

This series will publish the varied and multidisciplinary outcomes of the projects funded by the HRC.

We hope those receiving funding from the HRC (including doctoral fellowship conferences) will seriously consider publication in this series. In addition, the Series will accept proposals from the Faculty community in general, with the proviso that any such proposals are interdisciplinary.

Warwick Studies (with Anthem Press)

This is a new series that partners the HRC with Anthem Press, a small independent publisher offering a high quality list aimed at the academic community. Unlike the Warwick Series in the Humanities which is explicitly inter-disciplinary, the Warwick Studies will have more of a discipline-specific focus, and thus will be marketed as Warwick Studies in Literature, Warwick Studies in History etc.
