Research Activities

Research Institute Thematic Awards (RITAs)

The University has established the RITAs specifically to support EHU staff bids involving interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary activities based within the three university research institutes (I4P, ICE, PGMI).  Interdisciplinary research here is understood as occurring where the contributions of the various disciplines are integrated to provide holistic or systemic outcomes: these tend to generate new ways of doing research which integrate the different disciplinary approaches. Multidisciplinary research brings together disciplines to investigate issues from each of their perspectives.  More information.

Research Clusters

ICE is pleased to support and promote research groups and networks at Edge Hill University:

Arts for Wellbeing Research Group
The research theme of Arts for Wellbeing builds upon existing practice-based expertise, research and knowledge transfer experience in the arts for wellbeing. It works with research publications (books, chapters, articles, systematic reviews and practice-based outputs) and with existing links and connections at local, national and international levels. The group’s aim is to generate evidence of good arts practice for wellbeing across the life span.  For more information please check out the Arts for Wellbeing Homepage

ICE members engage in a wide array of research activities.  Our research generates new knowledge, engages with current debates and has societal impacts.

ICE research projects and activities span areas as diverse as performance, creative writing, media, film, computing and sport. Read about some of our projects and their impact below.

The Edge Hill Research Archive (EHRA) showcases selected published research produced by Edge Hill University academic staff and researchers.  The archive seeks to:

  • Increase the visibility and impact of Edge Hill’s research outputs;
  • Raise awareness of research endeavours and activities at Edge Hill;
  • Make research outputs easily searchable via search engines (e.g. Google);
  • Facilitate better management and storage of digital content.
