Our Members

SHL Lab team

The Sussex Humanities Lab is steered by the SHL Executive Group. Our Members are drawn from across the Schools of Education and Social Work; Engineering and Informatics; English; History, Art History, and Philosophy; Law; and Media and Music; as well as the Library. The SHL team also includes dedicated administrative and technical support and doctoral researchers. Additionally, we host Visiting Fellows and have a network of Associates (see SHL Associates).
