Networks are a dynamic and fluid form of research organisation for developing collaborative and interdisciplinary projects. The School has taken the lead in, or is an active member of, a number of research networks, involving researchers in other Schools and Institutions both in the UK and internationally, two or which have received AHRC funding.

Cardiff Language and Law network (CaLL)

Cardiff Language and Law Network provide a focus for anyone working at the interface between language/communication and the law to explore and discuss ideas. We are interested in collaborating with researchers in other Schools within Cardiff and those at other institutions working in the field of language and law, broadly conceived. We aim more generally to facilitate, encourage and undertake collaborative research between legal practitioners so we are interested, too, in collaborating with those who work in legal settings of any sort.

Wales-Ireland Network

This international and interdisciplinary network was established with funding from the Arts and Humanities Council of Great Britain

Philosophy of Mind: Embedded, Extended, Enactive and Embodied

This research network is a collaborative project which was originally set up in 2005/6 between Cardiff University and  the University of Hull to develop an international research network in the philosophy of mind with a distinctive focus on accounts of the mind as embedded, embodied, enactive, and extended.

The Formulaic Language Research Network (FLaRN)

FLaRN is a loose association of professional and student academic researchers which exists to co-ordinate research work in the field of formulaic language, to share ideas and resources, and to create a sense of community between researchers who are not necessarily in geographical proximity. It also acts as a focus for Cardiff students researching formulaic language.
