Centre for the Study of the Renaissance

Centre for the Study of the Renaissance

Warwick's Centre for the Study of the Renaissance is an autonomous, internationally-recognized centre of the University supported by the Arts Faculty. It advances – through research, teaching, and outreach – the study of the period stretching from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century, at Warwick and beyond. It explores Renaissance Studies in a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary way and within a context of international collaboration, promoting activities that intersect with the work of medievalists and early modernists.


The CSR organizes special study days – and, subject to demand, longer courses – for the community. See our past events and look out for events in 2023.

You can also find out more about our online provision in palaeography and Latin for research.

Our online reading group (currently on Montaigne) is open to all.
