Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS)
The Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies was founded in 1996 as an interdisciplinary postgraduate Centre. It has four main purposes: to administer postgraduate teaching for the long-standing MA by Coursework and Dissertation, to promote research through our MA, MPhil and PhD by research, to encourage publications in the Medieval and Early Modern periods, and to develop links with Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library. Staff members of the Centre are drawn from the constituent Schools of the Faculty (particularly English and History) with a wide variety of research interests, many of which cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.
