Charles Withers: “The Institute has, deservedly, the highest international reputation as a centre for humanities research. It has that reputation because it offers a haven for scholarly endeavour, for sustained engagement with one’s research free from the distractions of teaching (and more distracting still, one’s colleagues and administration).”
Jo Clifford: “IASH is a precious island of intelligent, creative, and free discourse. It’s an intellectual community in the very best sense of the word: an amazing and astonishing space to write a play in.”
