Research Fellows

The CSR benefits from a fantastic research community. We have hosted Fellowships and Research Associateships thanks to funding from the AHRC, the Leverhulme Trust, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the MHRA, and Warwick's own Institute for Advanced Study. Many of our former postdoctoral fellows and research associates have subsequently gone on to build successful academic careers.

Below you will find details of our current research fellows. Their background is quite varied, from history to history of art, and from history of science to literature and book history.

Benefactor’s Small Research Awards
