PhD in Renaissance Studies

About the course

We offer our doctoral students a buoyant research culture with academics of national and international renown from across Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern Studies (see 'People'). Students are typically advised by two supervisors based in different departments. This allows them to pursue research that combines multiple methodological approaches. The CSR's strong institutional links, and the presence of visiting students and scholars, make for a greatly enriching environment for our own students.
