About the Centre


In 2014, the Warwick University History Department established the European History Research Centre (EHRC) and since then, the centre has developed into a lively hub for supporting, coordinating, and publicising research and policy-related activities.


The staff of the EHRC have currently 5 major strands of research interest:

  1. Political protest: BarricadesLink opens in a new window
  2. Urban history: Urban reconstruction in Europe, 1914-1939Link opens in a new window
  3. Histories of sexuality and queer history: Link to Anna H’s work
  4. End of empire and internationalisation: Imperial AfterlivesLink opens in a new window
  5. Memory studies: The Memory GroupLink opens in a new window; War remembrance in EuropeLink opens in a new window


The EHRC funds:

  • PhD students looking to undertake archival work, participate in conferences, and establish collaborations with senior colleagues
  • Postdocs. We are especially keen to assist in the development of postdoctoral grants (Leverhulme, BA, ESRC, Wellcome, Fullbright, Marshall etc). Please get in touch with us as early as possible so we can work on the submission together.
  • Research projects carried out by staff at all levels and stages of research.

The EHRC also facilitates and funds opportunities for visiting scholars and provides an institutional platform to organise and promote workshops, conferences, seminars, lectures and impact-related activities.
