Welcome to the University of Oxford's Centre for Early Modern Studies (CEMS). Founded in 2007, CEMS brings together a multidisciplinary range of research activities across departments and colleges at the University of Oxford.

CEMS is a central hub for researchers of all disciplines — hosting faculty members and postgraduate students from thirteen departments — who are interested in the various aspects of early modernity in Europe and beyond. This website facilitates their research by advertising research seminars and conferences, sharing research projects, co-ordinating competitions for funding, publicising opportunities for early career researchers, and connecting early modernists around the university.

If you would like to advertise an early modern event, or want to be added to our mailing list, please contact the research co-ordinator, Dan Haywood.

We also welcome new additions to our people pages. Contact Dan if you would like to share your research activities and interests with us.
