Changing Lives

The humanities are all about people. In the Faculty of Humanities at The University of Manchester, our study of people - their lives, environments and cultures - is socially responsible. This means that we aim to make a positive difference to communities through our teaching, research and public activities.


Work that changes lives is worth celebrating. As the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences brings a week of events to families, schools and local communities across Greater Manchester, we’re sharing just some of the many other ways our work is changing lives. We hope you’ll find something to inspire you!
