Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities (BIH)
The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities was established in 2004 to stimulate research, public debate and collaboration among academics and intellectuals on important public issues of today.
The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities continues to support interdisciplinary research and engagement among colleagues across Birkbeck, University of London and beyond, and regularly collaborates with UK-based and international academics, researchers and activists.
Key to the Institute's mission is the promotion of new ideas and forms of understanding in the humanities and beyond. To facilitate this, the Institute organises and supports lectures, conferences, discussion panels, masterclasses and film screenings. Many of these are free and open to the public.
The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities also provides short-term fellowships for a small number of scholars from Britain and overseas, who wish to collaborate with colleagues at Birkbeck. These are chosen yearly through an open competition.
