The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) was founded in July 2015. It seeks to promote high level research in traditional humanities disciplines such as history, philosophy, and literature, while also engaging with more recent developments in the humanities and other fields, including cultural studies, communication, politics and international studies, and science communication. The Institute consists of a number of full-time research-focused academics, postdoctoral fellows, faculty fellows, and visiting fellows. IASH is supported by strategic funding from the UQ Senior Executive and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Most of its specific research projects are funded by external grants.
