The History of Art department maintains close links with four interdisciplinary research centres.
Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies
The Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies (CECS), at the University of York, was founded in 1996 and is now a major centre for the study of the 'long' eighteenth century, 1650-1850, in the UK.
Centre for Renaissance and Early Modern Studies
The Centre for Renaissance and Early Modern Studies (CREMS) is a flourishing interdisciplinary community devoted to the study of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Centre for Medieval Studies
The Centre for Medieval Studies (CMS) at the University of York was founded in 1968 in order to promote interdisciplinary research into the Middle Ages, and it is now one of the most successful teaching institutions in this field anywhere in the world.
Centre for Modern Studies
The Centre for Modern Studies (CModS) fosters the development of interdisciplinary research in the period from 1850 to the present, involving faculty and postgraduates across several departments, with particular support from English, History and History of Art.
