'One of the world's premier Institutes for Advanced Study. We support innovative research and public engagement activities across the arts, humanities and social sciences through a range of interdisciplinary and international projects and programmes ... Over the years, IASH has focused on a number of key questions in the humanities, especially those which have relevance to the position of Edinburgh within the tradition of the Scottish Enlightenment, a tradition which continues to have relevance today. We encourage work that is inventive and exploratory, and especially work that forges links between the humanities and the interpretive or historical social sciences, and between the humanities in this broad sense and the medical, natural and technological sciences.'
