Our inaugural research theme for 2023/24 is Beginnings.

An ideal start for this new initiative, Beginnings is a multidisciplinary theme that engages with Sussex research in many different ways, encouraging us to think about creation, origins, emergence, natality, and newness. How might ideas of coming-into-being help us think anew about interdisciplinarity, climate change, history, creative practice, and our teaching and research more broadly?

The theme will support events throughout the year, starting with a Beginnings-themed Research Conversation and will involve a call for ideas that will feed into the Media, Arts and Humanities Festival of Ideas in Spring 2024.
