College life facilitates the building of close relationships between academics and students across a wide range of subject areas. This leads to the development of interesting cross-disciplinary research questions and the fruitful practical collaboration which is the result of working with people we know and like. We are proud to be home to a small number of specific research centres, led by Pembroke academics.
Religion and the Frontier Challenges
‘Religion and the Frontier Challenges’ is a postdoctoral research fellowship programme that was established in October 2019. The programme is a part of the University of Oxford, based at Pembroke College with an affiliation with the Faculty of Theology and Religion.
The Changing Character of War Centre
Based here in Pembroke, CCW members' research addresses the most significant themes and challenges produced by war, and analyses the dynamics of change. The Centre is focussed and coheres around the idea of war, that is armed conflict, while engaging with other disciplines and fields to improve the quality and depth of understanding.
The Quill Project
Quill researches and models the context within which constitutional conventions, legislative assemblies, and other formal groups made decisions. The project is directed by Dr Nicholas Cole, a political historian specializing in post-Independence America, and operates across the fields of humanities, computer science, and the social sciences.
