IICE has recently transitioned into the Societies and Cultures Institute (SCI), with a new website launching in late Autumn 2022.
IICE cultivates interdisciplinary research into culture; working within and beyond the academy with external partners and cultural practitioners to develop world-leading interdisciplinary research for wider public benefit. We facilitate national and international collaboration to tackle pressing global issues, seeking solutions with deep, real cultural resonance.
IICE provides opportunities for researchers to carry out cultural enquiry, with interdisciplinarity as our guiding mode of practice: undertaking collaborative research projects across and beyond departments and disciplines.
Our projects cover matters ranging from climate change to racial justice, from marginalised communities to digital challenges, with a commitment to research excellence, ethics and innovative methodologies. IICE aims to establish a disruptive space where research questions and methods – the cutting-edge tools of enquiry – are formed, defined and interrogated.
