The North of England Consortium for Arts and Humanities is coordinated by the History Department at the University of Hull and consists of Bradford, Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds Beckett, Sheffield Hallam and Teesside universities.

The Consortium was established in 2014 to deliver doctoral training, widen access to Masters provision and to promote research across all arts and humanities disciplines.

Major disciplines and fields currently represented in NECAH include:

  • Archaeology
  • Art and Design
  • Creative Writing
  • Cultural Studies
  • Digital Arts and New Media
  • Drama and Performing Arts
  • English Language and Literature
  • Film
  • Gender Studies
  • History
  • Journalism
  • Media Studies
  • Music

The Consortium embraces an inclusive, open-ended approach to Arts and Humanities research, and has designed structures intended to maximise cross-fertilisation and open dissemination of innovative ideas and good practice. However, we also believe that there is strength in the combination of different institutions, with individual missions and research specialisms, since it is through this diversity that new ideas and approaches will emerge. Each member brings recognised strengths in one or more key fields of research expertise and doctoral training. These strengths are supplemented by additional expertise complimenting that at other member institutions.


The North of England Consortium for Arts and Humanities is a collaboration between a number of institutions.
