The W.H. Oliver Humanities Academy has been created to foster a vibrant, creative and highly responsive research culture among humanities scholars, which anticipates and addresses current and future research challenges.
The academy brings together staff and postgraduate students from a range of disciplines including classics, creative and expressive arts, English literature, heritage and museum studies, history, languages, linguistics, media studies, philosophy and religious studies. Researchers from other parts of Massey University also contribute.
The W.H. Oliver Humanities Academy takes its name from Professor William Oliver, who founded Massey’s history programme in 1964. Professor Oliver was one of the first humanities researchers at Massey.
Inaugural Director is Associate Professor Kerry Taylor, a historian and Head of the School of Humanities.
