The Media, Arts and Humanities Research Institute

The Media, Arts and Humanities Research Institute is the collaborative hub of research in Media, Arts and Humanities at Sussex. It draws on the Sussex traditions of radicalism and innovation to support our research and creative practice from across the School.

Coming soon: Media, Arts and Humanities 2-Day Summer Writing Retreat 

9.30am-4pm on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July 2024, Arts A108

We all need time to write, whether we are working on a book, article, funding bid, or blog. In response to this need, writing retreats throughout the academic year have become a popular and important strand of the School of Media, Arts and Humanities' programme of events.

You are welcome to come to both days or just one day of this special on-campus event. It will be an informal opportunity for faculty and PGRs to prioritise their writing and initiate a productive summer of research. Offering a flexible, unpressured approach to communal and/or individual writing, it is open to all career stages and types of research.

Please reserve your free place using your Sussex email address by Weds 26 June.

This event is open to faculty and PGRs in the University of Sussex's School of Media, Arts and Humanities.

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
