Professor Trevor Bennett has been appointed as Director of the Research Institute of Humanities, Creative Industries and Social Sciences (HUMCISS).
HUMCISS is a new multi-disciplinary Research Institute which will play a strategic role in developing research in the Humanities, Creative and Cultural Industries, and Social Sciences. The aim of the Institute is to generate an organisational base from which to direct research activity and promote research excellence. During its early period, its main task will be to create an internal organisational framework. Once established, the Institute will provide an outward face to promote and support its activities. Professor Bennett will play a key role during this formative period in establishing an effective structure for organising and enhancing fundamental and applied research at the University.
