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 Media, Arts, and Humanities, 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 has significant expertise in 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 modules encourage flexibility and innovation, offering training in specialist skills, 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 reading group, and regular excursions. For those interested in developing their study of the medieval and early modern periods, the Centre is a welcoming place to be.
