Understanding the Human
- Identifying, understanding and enhancing human knowledge, imagination, learning, cultures and behaviours is crucial in this theme
- The theme is central to research excellence in the Arts, Social Sciences and Behavioural Sciences and is strongly interdisciplinary
- Alongside theoretical explorations of human behaviour, our expertise involves work to understand and change behaviour patterns and influence public policy in these areas
- Examples include digital humanities, education science, the politics of language and wider communication, the production of knowledge, human consciousness and emotions, happiness and productivity, understanding science, evidence and proof, punishment, autonomy and voter behaviour and artificial intelligence
- Our research centres in this area include the Social Theory Centre, Warwick Mind and Action Research Centre, Centre for Human Rights in Practice, the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender, Connecting Research on Employment and Work, the Centre for Research in Post-Kantian European Philosophy, the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies, the Criminal Justice Centre, the Global History and Culture Centre and the Centre for Mental Health & Wellbeing Research.
