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, and a thriving postgraduate community drawn from across the country and the world, the Centre covers many 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.

We also run a blog where staff and postgraduates share their thoughts on a wide range of topics; ranging from research updates to discussions of research issues to book and theatre reviews, and to any other subject relevant to the Centre and the wider research community.
