Birmingham Eighteenth-Century Centre (BECC) is one of the largest eighteenth-century centres in the UK, bringing together researchers with a research interest in the long eighteenth century from across the University, the West Midlands, and beyond. It is a multi-disciplinary centre, with representatives working across a broad range of fields including History, English, Modern Languages, History of Medicine, Music and History of Art.
BECC’s mission is to promote and support new and existing research in the century through regular seminars, workshops, an annual symposium with Warwick University's Eighteenth-Century Centre, collaborations with the Cadbury Research Library, the Barber Institute of Fine Arts and Birmingham Museums and Art Galleries and a postgraduate award with the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. BECC’s members contribute to several important University-wide research themes including ‘Heritage and Digital Humanities’, ‘Connected Communities’ and ‘Translating Cultures’.
