The Early Modern History MRes is run out of the Centre for Reformation and Early Modern Studies (CREMS), one of the most dynamic concentrations of early modern historians in the country. We have more than half a dozen full time academic staff with expertise in the period c.1500-1800 in History alone, with geographical coverage including and Stuart England, local (West-Midlands) history, Germany, Italy, and the wider world. CREMS also has excellent links with staff in English, the Shakespeare Institute, History of Art, and elsewhere. CREMS supports a vibrant postgraduate community and, since its creation in 2004, has developed a thriving seminar culture that reflects the diverse research interests of staff and students across the departments of History and English, meaning that you’ll be able to gain insight from a range of academics and peers from across the College of Arts and Law.
You will also become part of, and contribute to, the vibrant international community of the College of Arts and Law Graduate School, which offers dedicated research resources and a supportive working environment. Our team of academic and operational staff are on hand to offer support and advice to all postgraduate students within the College.
