“From voices of the slave trade to lost music of the English country house—and of course the world of women's writing, including our local heroine Jane Austen—researchers and students at the Southampton Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies explore the global eighteenth century in all of its facets. I hope you will enjoy our new web site, and to hear from you soon, whether you are a prospective student for our MA in Eighteenth Century Studies, a fellow researcher or a member of the general public.”
