Research

The British School at Rome is Britain’s leading humanities research institute abroad. It is also the nexus for Commonwealth scholars of Italy and some of the finest contemporary artists practicing today.

Our research strategy builds on the outstanding resources of our Library and community of scholars to focus on excellence, interdisciplinarity, internationalization and dissemination.

Our activity is focused on seven key themes which inform our humanities and fine arts programmes.

We offer a full programme of lectures, workshops and conferences , and our facilities, expertise and engagement with Italian and Commonwealth scholarship is available to scholars across the world.

Please contact the Director, Christopher Smith, to discuss how the BSR can support your research.
