Centre for Early Modern and Medieval Studies

Welcome to the Centre for Early Modern and Medieval Studies

The Centre for Early Modern and Medieval Studies at Sussex is one of the foremost interdisciplinary institutions of its kind in Britain. Consisting of distinguished and committed academics from the School of English and Departments of History and Art History, as well as a thriving postgraduate community drawn from across the country and the world, the Centre covers most aspects of early modern study and is currently undergoing a new expansion into the medieval period.

With an international reputation of many years' standing, and with strong links with local archives and libraries, Sussex offers an ideal environment for faculty and students to strive for research excellence. Our MA encourages flexibility and innovation, offering training in specialist skills such as palaeography, and a firm and diverse grounding while developing specialisation.

The Centre's many strengths are reflected in the large number of events we coordinate: a full programme of visiting speakers, recent international conferences, a postgraduate reading group and regular excursions. For those interested in developing their study of the medieval and early modern periods, the Centre is a welcoming, yet challenging, place to study.
