Summary

**Information about the MPhil:**

You'll be required to write a thesis of up to 60,000 words (exclusive of appendices, footnotes, tables and bibliography). Work for this degree can be done in any of the areas where the Centre can offer expert supervision. Please consult the staff list to see current research interests.

Please note that all doctoral students are first registered as MPhil students. There is an upgrade procedure in the third term of the first year (for full-time students) or the first term of the second year (for part-time students), in order to register for a PhD degree.

Areas for research supervision include:

Aristotelianism and Platonism in Early Modern Europe; Classical Tradition in Renaissance Literature; Court and Civic Culture; Dante; Education in the Renaissance; Gender; Greek Diaspora in Renaissance Europe; History of Art; History of the Bible; History of Scholarship; History of Translation; Intellectual Culture; Medieval and Renaissance Drama; Neo-Latin Literature; Printing and the History of the Book; Reading Practices; Renaissance Letters; Renaissance Venice; Theatre and Performance; Travel, Colonialism and the New World; Visual Culture.

**Information about the PhD:**

You may be considered for the doctoral programme if you hold, or are currently studying for, an MA (or international equivalent) in a relevant discipline; you should normally also have a first degree in a relevant subject. If in any doubt, contact the Director of Graduate Studies by e-mail to discuss eligibility in advance of applying. Research towards the award of a PhD (three years full-time; five-years part-time) may be undertaken in any of the disciplinary areas covered by the academic interests of staff teaching for the Centre. Interdisciplinary research is encouraged.

You can apply at any time of the academic year, although it is sensible to do this as early as possible, particularly if you are seeking sources of funding. You should include in your application a statement of your research project and a sample of your recent written work (ideally an essay or dissertation chapter from your MA work).

If accepted, you will be accepted and registered initially as an M.Phil student. During the course of your studies, you will be formally upgraded to PhD registration after a monitoring procedure.

Areas for research supervision include:

Aristotelianism and Platonism in Early Modern Europe; Classical Tradition in Renaissance Literature; Court and Civic Culture; Dante; Education in the Renaissance; Gender; Greek Diaspora in Renaissance Europe; History of Art; History of the Bible; History of Scholarship; History of Translation; Intellectual Culture; Medieval and Renaissance Drama; Neo-Latin Literature; Printing and the History of the Book; Reading Practices; Renaissance Letters; Renaissance Venice; Theatre and Performance; Travel, Colonialism and the New World; Visual Culture.
