First residential school for School of Humanities

This July the School of Humanities has run its first residential summer school. Over 4 days, 15 students aged 16-17 from across the UK explored some of the different ways of seeing and examining the world we deploy across the School of Humanities at Brighton.

Through philosophy, creative writing and photography workshops those  attending got involved in studying not just new approaches and methods, but new ways of thinking about the Humanities. Through study days on the Royal Pavilion as a First World War hospital, Charleston House as the home of the Bloomsbury group, we explored different ways of examining and representing the past.

The week also saw those attending mentored by our current students, to get some inside knowledge on student life at university. The Summer School was a really enjoyable opportunity to show what we do and those attending enjoyed it too. As one of them put it “I have learnt that there are a lot more degree options for me. I have enjoyed meeting new people and making friends from different areas”. Looking forward to next year!
