Resources and Techniques for the Study of Renaissance and Early Modern Culture

This programme provides specialist research training to doctoral students working on Renaissance and Early Modern subjects in a range of disciplines at universities across the UK and the rest of the world. The programme draws on the combined skills in electronic resources, archival sources, manuscripts, books, and images of the staff of the Warburg Institute and the University of Warwick. These are two of the major centres in Britain for the study of the Renaissance and the Early Modern period.

Undergraduate Research

The History Department encourages undergraduate students to be fully integrated into the research culture of the Department by participating directly in projects. The experience gained in producing, presenting and publishing research is invaluable for enhancing the student experience and for future employability.

Warwick ePortfolio

Research and personal development skills training is an integral part of research students' course of study, and that compiling evidence of such training and attainments will be valuable for students not only as a postgraduate researcher, but also in their post-study life, whether that is within or outside of academia. The ePortfolio is an innovative online tool designed to support students in their development as postgraduate researchers.
