Eighteenth Century Centre
The Warwick Eighteenth Century Centre is an interdisciplinary research centre based in the Department of History of the University of Warwick. The Centre runs, and is associated with, major research projects as well as providing a forum for academic staff and postgraduate students in the Humanities, including members of the departments of History, English, French and History of Art.
The Centre is closely involved with the Early Modern Forum and is a key element in the History Department's strength in Early Modern History. This Forum aims to give students and staff a place that links them to relevant information and resources which cover a large time period (1450 to 1850). It also aims to encourage the exchange of ideas and aims to promote interaction with others through a variety of different media. The Centre also enjoys close relations with the Global History & Culture Centre and the Centre for the History of Medicine.
The Centre organises regular sessions of the 'Eighteenth Century Seminar' throughout the academic year. Details of the Seminars and occasional workshops can be found on the Events page. The Centre is closely involved with the Department of History’s MA in Eighteenth-Century Studies.
