Research entities

The Faculty is home to globally renowned and emerging scholars working within, between and beyond disciplines in the humanities at the horizon of the knowledge economy. Thirteen academics on its staff are members of the prestigious Academy of Science of South Africa and almost a quarter of its researchers have obtained ratings from the National Research Foundation. 

The Faculty’s collective knowledge is published through a steeply increasing number of high-quality books, chapters and journal articles that give shape to a formidable bibliometric footprint.

In keeping with the vision of a research-intensive university the Faculty will continue to develop and advance globally impactful scholarship on the questions that define and disrupt what it means to be human in the twenty-first century. 

A host of research groups and entities can be found within the faculty and across our schools. Browse through some of them below. Other important work from across the University, including multidisciplinary research projects can be found here.
