A new Centre for Early Modern Studies was launched this week at a reception in Jesus College. 
The Centre, based in the English faculty, brings together specialists in a range of disciplines including English, history, theology, music and oriental studies to promote research and study in the Early Modern period.  A conference on ‘Rethinking the Early Modern’ is planned for Trinity term and the Centre is keen to develop greater graduate involvement. 
Dr Paulina Kewes, Fellow in English Literature at Jesus, said that the Centre offers “significant intellectual as well as career-development opportunities” for students.
