The University of Southampton
Centre for Medieval and Renaissance CulturePostgraduate


We have a growing number of PhD students attached to the centre and researching a variety of topics. We welcome students from any humanities discipline; the wide range of our staff research interests and their commitment to interdisciplinary and cross-period research means that we would expect to be able to match you with a team of people able and willing to supervise your project.

While we normally expect our MPhil/PhD students to have a Masters degree in an appropriate subject, we can also accommodate students who have relevant practical, archival or museum experience. One advantage in studying for your PhD at Southampton is that we are able to put together teams of supervisors and advisors from more than one discipline. See our staff research interests page to help you identify areas in which we might be able to offer supervision for your discipline-specific or cross-disciplinary project.

For further information or to discuss a possible project please contact Professor Catherine Clarke.
