CRASSH works closely with the Schools of Arts and Humanities and Humanities and Social Sciences but is independent of any faculty or department. It comes under the School of Arts and Humanities for administrative purposes while continuing to work across both Schools. The Centre's Management Committee oversees the policy and management of the Centre, meeting once a term throughout the year.
