Heritage at Exeter connects inspirational, diverse and accredited academics from across the globe. Our expertise spans multiple disciplines, including History, Cultural Geography, Business Innovation, Archaeology, English, and Performance and New Media. Through our Heritage Network, we continue to build strong relationships with industry partners as well as community groups and cultural stakeholders, and are engaged in developing these links regionally, nationally and internationally. Our ongoing investment in Exeter and across the peninsula has resulted in a significant boost to the region’s contribution to the creative economy, as well as raising its profile as a place of national importance in terms of heritage management and conservation.
To support this, the University has invested £1.2m in a state-of-the-art Digital Humanities Lab, housing specialist, conservation-grade equipment and providing space for academics, students and creative partners to research, study and collaborate. Additionally, our Special Collections and Special Collections Libraries manage archives, manuscripts and book collections that are available to staff, students and external researchers.
