Some ideas off the top of my head:

- Lambda the Ultimate (not Haskell or fp specific) http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/
- Browse recent editions of the Journal of Functional Programming  
(perhaps they even subscribe to it at the Uni in question) and perhaps  
- Browse the recent proceedings of various conferences and workshops  
such as International Conference on Functional Programming, Trends in  
Functional Programming, the Haskell Symposium, Practical Aspects of  
Declarative Languages, Principles and Practice of Declarative  
Programming, International Summer School on Advanced Functional  
Programming (and many others).
- Check the home pages and blogs of well-known and active researchers  
(I won't list them).
- Maybe http://www.readscheme.org/, though not Haskell specific. (not  
sure if http://haskell.readscheme.org/ is working anymore).
- There's quite a list of papers on haskell.org, under http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Research_papers
