Research Themes

You are here Research

To help address some of society’s major challenges, the Institute works with its partner Schools, the Library and wider university research community to identify a number of cross-disciplinary research themes around which to focus the development of major research questions.

Since 2012, the Institute has supported the development of Trinity’s five Arts and Humanities-led research themes (out of a total of 19 university themes) and the emergence of new research groupings. Trinity’s research themes draw on a critical mass of research from across the university to focus on addressing some of society’s major challenges. The Arts and Humanities-led themes are: Digital Humanities; Identities in Transformation; Creative Arts Practice; Making Ireland; and Manuscript, Book and Print Cultures.

In October 2015 the Institute hosted a major event moderated by Sir Martyn Lewis, which showcased all five themes, articulated their relevance for society, and produced a range of web, print and video material to promote the themes in a coherent way.
