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).

We aim to facilitate interdepartmental and interdisciplinary research projects and support and develop innovative graduate study in the field. We run an ongoing series of lunchtime seminars, the Early Modern Forum, to discuss work in progress and new intellectual trends, provide training and skills-based workshops, and encourage the development of innovative approaches to academic work on the early modern period, often including a performance element.

The Centre is committed to promoting a historical understanding across a broad range of cultures and thinking through the present in historically-informed ways.

We welcome proposals for conferences, workshops, and other events that promote the Centre’s intellectual agenda and the public understanding of the early modern period.

Directors: Emily Butterworth & Anna Linton
