We have a long-standing reputation for excellent research in linguistics and English language, particularly research with an applied focus.

We are also active in making our research accessible to the wider public, which we do through a number of initiatives, including our consultancy, Language Unlocked, and Babel: The Language Magazine, which is published in the department.
In History our research encompasses a wide range chronologically, geographically and conceptually.

Spanning the Middle Ages to the modern day, Huddersfield’s historians have interests in the fields of oral history, gender history, health history, political history, digital history, religious history, social history and public history.
