The Joint Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies (JFIGS) is responsible for supporting and developing all graduate activity within the Faculties of Arts & Humanities and Social & Historical Sciences. JFIGS enhances the research environment for graduate students and academic colleagues. JFIGS funds a range of interdisciplinary research activities led by graduate students and/or staff in across the Faculties of Arts & Humanities and Social & Historical Sciences.


One of the graduate students who is co-organising the Georgics conference, for which JFIGS has provided generous funding, has just been appointed to a research post in Durham... He is quite sure that the organisation of the conference was one of the things that made him attractive to his new employers...
