The Stout Research Centre was established to encourage scholarly inquiry into New Zealand society, history and culture.

We are part of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Victoria University and offer postgraduate degrees in History, New Zealand Literature and New Zealand Studies. We host independent scholars from the community and the JD Stout Fellow.
