Research Showcases

Current areas of research being undertaken at St Mary’s are:

Health and Wellbeing

This is an interdisciplinary research area covering physical and spiritual well-being. Researchers involved in this research come from the Female Health and Well-Being research cluster in Sport, Health and Applied Science and the Centre for Initiatives in Spirituality and Reconciliation in Education, Theology and Leadership

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

The new Centre for the Study of Modern Slavery opened in 2016 working with government departments to identify knowledge gaps, generating empirical evidence to make the response more targeted, and generate better results for those subject to slavery and trafficking. 

Religion and Society

The new Benedict XVI Centre for Religion and Society, which opened at St Mary’s in 2015, draws together existing strands of research on campus, while fostering new projects in collaboration with external partners, both individual and institutional.
