Disruptive research into what it means to be human.

Who We Are
Who Are We?

A new, ground breaking institute at the University of Sheffield.

Bringing together social sciences & humanities with psychological & biological sciences to understand what it means to be human like never before.

We are a diverse research community, valuing different knowledges with a disruptive and critical intellectual agenda, embracing serendipity and supporting development with enabling internal processes to create a well-resourced and inviting space for flourishing.

We analyse and promote innovative thinking about what it means to be human in modern times, and the relationship between changing boundaries and social justice.

We have so far received over one million pounds from funding councils including ESRC and Leverhulme to research some of the most pressing issues facing today’s society.
