One of the two top places in the UK for the study of the Renaissance and early modern period
- BBC History Magazine
"Having been warned that writing a PhD thesis could be a rather lonely experience, I was delighted to find that, by association with CREMS, the opposite was true! The regular CREMS events make for an extremely vibrant and rich research community, and it's amazing how much I was able to pick up from historians, archaeologists and even musicologists which enlivened and enriched my own research. I've made some great friends through CREMS, as well as being inspired by the marvellous range of research topics I've been introduced to. It's been a pleasure to be part of the CREMS community!"
Chloe Preedy, PhD English Literature, associated with CREMS
"I enjoyed the interdisciplinary nature of the course and the themes and issues raised helped create a truly comprehensive view of the period"

The Humanities Research Centre is a beautifully designed space of shared belonging for academics and postgraduates from across York's Arts and Humanities departments. Its dynamic and inclusive community provides a highly stimulating and supportive base for postgraduate study.
