Centre for Early Modern Studies

The Centre for Early Modern Studies at Oxford (CEMS) facilitates communication among scholars of different disciplines whose research has a common focus on the early modern period. Based in the Faculty of English, but interdisciplinary in scope, CEMS functions as a resource for those seeking to know about seminars, conferences, exhibitions and research projects whose subject is the early modern world. The Centre is supported by the English, History, and Modern Languages Faculties and the Higher Studies Fund.
