The Institute builds on excellence in Arts and Humanities research at Aberystwyth and Bangor and will take a multidisciplinary approach to the study of the medieval and early modern periods. Lead by a Director of international standing, this crossdepartmental, cross-university research network will combine systematically, through clustered smaller research projects and larger collaborative activities, to create the capacity to address large research questions and modernise the working culture of established scholars, post-doctoral researchers and post-graduate research students. A number of multidisciplinary teams have been created focused on topics such as: Women and the Sacred, Cultures of War, Cultures of Manuscript and Print, and Peripheral Cultures.
