We share many interests with other Warwick departments (Philosophy, History, Centre for Renaissance Studies, Italian, History of Art) and have research collaborations with universities within the UK and internationally.

There is a lively community of postgraduates studying for taught MAs, research MAs and PhDs, including students from the UK and Europe. Current postgraduates are involved in research projects focusing on various aspects of material culture and literature in the ancient world and beyond.
