The College of Humanities at the University of Exeter has considerable research strengths in the areas of Science, Technology, and Culture. This has been recognised in the designation of Science, Technology, and Culture as one of the themes of the University’s new interdisciplinary Humanities and Social Science Strategy. We host several major AHRC grant awards supporting collaborative research with national and international partners. In Digital Humanities, staff research is concentrated around the University Centre for Intermedia and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Film Research. There is also extensive activity in areas around other elements of technology in culture.

To help prepare leaders who can collaborate, innovate, and produce concrete solutions to common problems, NITLE is launching a new leadership development program called the Innovation Studio. Inspired by start-up accelerators and project-based learning, the Innovation Studio offers a structure for librarians, information technologists, academic support staff, and other qualified candidates from across the NITLE Network to tackle thorny challenges. This competitive program is designed to produce two significant results: innovative solutions to critical issues in liberal education and a set of entrepreneurial, knowledgeable leaders well-prepared to help build a robust future for liberal education.
