Centre for Humanities Interdisciplinary Research Projects (CHIRP)

Students in UCL main library

CHIRP was established in September 2012 to provide a hub for interdisciplinary research activities based within Arts & Humanities and Social & Historical Sciences. The centre's aim is to amplify the reputation of these distinguished areas of UCL research activity as widely as possible, both across other Faculties of UCL and among outside institutions. 

We run a variety of high-profile events to showcase interdisciplinary work at UCL, offer advice and support to UCL’s many and varied interdisciplinary research groups, and are currently funding a variety of interdisciplinary research projects. We also use our social media sites to publicise funding opportunities, conferences and workshops to our growing list of followers.
