The newly established Arts and Health research cluster at University of Limerick aims to facilitate collaborative research between arts and health disciplines. The group was formed as a result of individual research interests concerned with the interplay between arts, health and well-being, and wishes to draw on these interests to create a hub for networking and collaboration between academics and practitioners in this field.
The cluster welcomes a diverse array of theoretical perspectives and research methodologies and has a particular interest in promoting and developing interdisciplinary research between humanities and STEM experts.
Comprised of a number of UL/LIT academics already engaged in arts and health related research, the group aims to:
- Bring together an interested body of researchers, from a wide variety of disciplines, to share research interests in arts, health and humanities
- Facilitate trans-disciplinary research partnerships and research groups within UL and potential cross-departmental funding applications
- Embed arts, health and humanities research at UL
- Connect the UL arts and health research group to the national and international field of research and practice
The Chair of the Arts and Health Research Cluster is Dr Hilary Moss from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at University of Limerick.
