Welcome to the University of Oxford's Centre for Early Modern Studies (CEMS). Founded in 2004, CEMS is now host to the largest, most vibrant early modern scholarly community in the world.

The CEMS website is a central hub for anyone interested in the great range of seminars, conferences, and research projects taking place at Oxford. Based in the Faculty of English but interdisciplinary in its range, CEMS is built around the activities and interests of faculty members, researchers, and postgraduate students. For enquiries about our website and activities or to be added to our mailing list, please contact the current research coordinator of CEMS, Dan Haywood. We hope you enjoy your visit.
