Research Centres

Centre for Early Modern Studies

The Centre for Early Modern Studies was established in 2015 to promote research in the early modern period (understood in its broadest sense, roughly 1400-1700).

Empires and Decolonizations Research Hub

Empires have been a common part of the lived experience of people around the globe through millennia. Understanding the history of these empires is more important than ever as societies grapple with imperial legacies and decolonizing processes. These different empires had their own temporalities, modalities, dynamics and contexts, but comparative study facilitates understanding and can prompt new and fruitful lines of enquiry. King’s College London has exceptional scholarly expertise in empires, whether ancient or modern. This hub brings these scholars together to facilitate such conversations and to serve as a resource for our community and beyond.

Centre for Enlightenment Studies

The Centre for Enlightenment Studies at King’s supports 18th century research strengths across the Faculty of Arts & Humanities.
