Historical Research Unit (HRU)
The Historical Research Unit aims to facilitate and promote historical research in a range of areas across the university and beyond by providing a supportive environment for the development of research capabilities in historical research. It identifies several strong areas of research expertise including historical biography, environmental history, health history, and oral history. The Unit offers advice on commissioned public history research projects where these relate to areas of staff expertise, and has the capacity to bring together a range of professionals, including historians, heritage consultants, archaeologists, architects, planners, editors, artists, designers and publishers, to work on special project needs. The Unit is supported by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
