Projects and research groups
The Department of Culture and Civilisation is a dynamic research centre that believes strongly in creating networks. Many of its staff belong to top level national and international bodies, often holding a high role within them. The Department has numerous active research groups. Covering a wide range of topics of interest and always open to international connections, they have steadily gained excellent recognition. The growing number of research projects that Department members are involved in, in various fields (archaeology, linguistics, history, geography, art history, anthropology, philology, literature, performance arts, etc.), and the Department’s high quality academic output, are testimony of an active, dynamic, first-rate research hub.
