© Modern society frequently links the word "street" with somewhat negative undertones -- as in street workers. A place, particularly in inner cities of perhaps danger, if not high risk. Yet the opposite is also true and often forgotten. In this audio slideshow, Dr. Fabrizio Nevola from the University of Bath celebrates the street of today and how it relates to Renaissance Italy in the research network. "Street Life, Street culture".




Arts & Humanities Research Council: Each year the AHRC provides approximately £100 million from the Government to support research and postgraduate study in the arts and humanities, from archaeology and English literature to design and dance. In any one year, the AHRC makes approximately 700 research awards and around 1,000 postgraduate awards. Awards are made after a rigorous peer review process, to ensure that only applications of the highest quality are funded. Arts and humanities researchers constitute nearly a quarter of all research-active staff in the higher education sector. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
