The IHSS brings together scholars from across the 8 schools of the faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The IHSS is directed by Simon Reid-Henry and supported by Jolanta Stanulionyte. In 2019 we also welcomed 16 new Strategic Lecturers to Queen Mary University of London as IHSS-affiliated scholars. They join a growing number of Post-Doctoral, Early Career and Marie Curie Fellows carrying out interdisciplinary work within the Faculty. Each year we also host a number of Visiting and Distinguished Visiting Fellows. Together with members of the IHSS Social Council and Directors Forum these scholars make up the IHSS “college”: a vibrant, trans-disciplinary research community at the heart of Queen Mary.
