What is LAHP?
The AHRC-funded London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP) brings together three leading UK Research Organisations based in London: King’s College London (KCL), School of Advanced Study (SAS) and University College London (UCL).
LAHP offer up to 80 cross-institutional postgraduate studentships per year for PhD research in the Arts and Humanities (for UK and EU students only).
Together, the three Research Organisations have over 750 active research staff and more than 1,300 PhD students working on AHRC subjects.
- A collective postgraduate research environment which combines excellence in traditional subjects with openness to innovative areas and methodologies, and an emphasis on interdisciplinarity.
- Outstanding doctoral supervision, with supervision across the partnership encouraged, and across a broad range of cultural partners in London
- Training opportunities (including digital humanities, public engagement, and intensive language learning at institutions such as the Goethe-Institut and Institut Françias) for all partnership students
- Training and financial support offered for cultural entrepreneurship
- Collaboration with cultural partners in London, and internships
Why this student-led conference?
In order to mark the arrival of the London School of Economics as an associate member of LAHP and to encourage students at King’s College London, University College London, School of Advanced Study, Queen Mary University and the London School of Economics to meet and discover commonalities in research themes and methods, LAHP is sponsoring and funding one-day student-led interdisciplinary conferences on the general theme of overlap, cross-fertilisation, and collaborative potential between the Humanities and Social Sciences.
