Centre For Late Antique Religion & Culture (CLARC)
This centre promotes and supports the study of late antique religion and culture from the late Hellenistic Period to the early Middle Ages, also in relation to earlier and later periods, in particular Classical Antiquity and the modern world.
Academic staff members are experts in Classical and Oriental Languages, History, Archaeology, Philosophy, Theology, Religious Studies, Cultural Studies and Literature.
Postgraduate research students with a wide range of interests take advantage of a unique set of expertise brought together by the Centre.
Staff members, research students and researchers from associated institutions are collaborating on several major research projects.
Since 2007 the Centre hosts the Journal for Late Antique Religion and Culture (JLARC), a peer-reviewed free-access online journal on topics related to the Centre's main areas of interest.
A wide range of modules is offered by members of the Centre for Undergraduate teaching.
The classical language programme is a particularly strong area of activity of the centre.
