The Trinity Long Room Hub is the Arts and Humanities Research Institute of Trinity College Dublin. It is one of five flagship research institutes of the University dedicated to promoting and facilitating innovative research across its nine Arts and Humanities member Schools.
The Hub offers researchers in member schools a supportive research environment that harnesses and expands the excellence of Trinity’s Arts and Humanities research. In particular championing the development of a small number of overarching priority research themes and seek to pioneer cross-disciplinary collaborative projects within the university and with national and international partners.
The current Arts and Humanities-led research themes are:
- Identities in transformation
- Digital Humanities
- Creative Arts Practice
- Making Ireland
- Manuscript, Book and Print Cultures
To strengthen our international networks and to bring our researchers into intensive dialogue with the best of their respective fields, we run a Visiting Research Fellows programme.
Since 2010, the institute’s home is a signature building at the heart of the historic campus. Its prominent location aptly signifies the centrality of the Arts and Humanities for our university and for society, and makes it an ideal place for connecting academic research with a wider public. It is one of the institute's prime aims to make the most of this location and serve as a focal point for debates on the challenges facing the world today and the contributions the Arts & Humanities make to addressing them. The Trinity Long Room Hub runs a dense and diverse programme of academic events, public lectures, seminars and conferences, aimed at increasing the visibility and the impact of our research.
The Trinity Long Room Hub takes its name from the Library’s iconic ‘Long Room’ to mark its strong links with the Library and to express the vital importance of its unique collections for the activities of our scholarly community. The institute hosts major, EU funded Digital Humanities research projects, which use the most advanced digital technologies for the democratization of knowledge and also explore new research questions, approaches and methodologies enabled by technological change.
The Trinity Long Room Hub has developed a number of exciting investment opportunities which includes support for the Visiting Fellowship Programme and naming opportunities within the Hub itself.
