The School of Advanced Study (SAS) at the University of London (UoL) is the UK’s national centre for the promotion and facilitation of research in the humanities. SAS brings together the specialised scholarship and resources of nine prestigious research institutes in Bloomsbury to provide an unrivalled scholarly environment dedicated to the support, evaluation and pursuit of research which is accessible to all higher education institutions in the UK and the rest of the world.
SAS also hosts a number of cross-disciplinary centres and research projects. The Human Rights Consortium, for instance, brings together the multidisciplinary expertise found in the institutes and collaborates worldwide to support, promote and disseminate research and policy work on human rights. A different kind of multidisciplinary endeavour can be seen in the School’s Human Mind Project: a coordinated, international effort to define the major intellectual challenges in understanding the nature and significance of the human mind.
Role in the project: In Cleopatra UoL leads WP3 “Dissemination, community building and exploitation” and brings its expertise to conduct a number of case studies.
