What opportunities do you have as a graduate?



Concentrate on your research project under the supervision of dedicated scholars

You do not need to spend many years on your Comps. You can start working on your doctoral project straight away. The individual supervision will allow you to produce a first-class product which will be ready for publication after the completion of your PhD




Be part of a lively intellectual community that brings together graduate students and scholars

There are many activities that will make you feel part of a vibrant intellectual community:

  • Weekly reading groups organized by Prof Peter Kornicki and Dr Laura Moretti

2012-13 reading groups: Read Meiji-period texts (Prof Kornicki)

Read Edo-period texts (Dr Moretti)




Be at the heart of a network of Libraries that possess huge repositories of early-modern texts





Be part of cutting-edge research projects
