How we work

Re-launched in March 2018, CTTR provides a new, exciting international platform for Wolverhampton's humanities scholars to work together with researchers across other disciplines; collaborate with scholars and scientists across all stages of their career; develop partnerships with public and private bodies; organize public engagement events and impact activities; and bring together the arts, humanities, science, and industry for knowledge exchange. 

We work closely with Dr Opinderjit Takhar’s Centre for Sikh and Panjabi Studies

CTTR is part of a network of funders, partners and (individual and institutional) collaborators who help us in producing cutting-edge research with strong societal impact.
