Centre for Early Modern Studies

The Centre for Early Modern Studies (CEMS) is an interdisciplinary hub for Oxford Humanities researchers working on various aspects of early modernity in Europe and beyond. It aims to facilitate interdisciplinary and cross-cultural research by organising research events, advertising seminars and conferences, co-ordinating an annual funding competition, publicising opportunities for early career researchers, and connecting early modernists around the university. CEMS has a newly-updated website. Please contact the research convenor, Dan Haywood, for enquiries
