Resources and Techniques for the Study of Renaissance and Early Modern Culture

Event Date: 
21 May 2019 to 24 May 2019

Since 2005 the programme 'Resources and Techniques for the Study of Renaissance and Early Modern Culture' has been providing specialist research training to doctoral students worldwide working on Renaissance and Early Modern subjects. The programme draws on the combined research specialisms and skills of the staff of the Warburg Institute and the University of Warwick—two of the major centres in Britain for the study of the Renaissance and the Early Modern period. Participants will benefit from a tailored programme (fundamentally reworked for 2019) bringing together insights from research fields such as literature, art history, book history, and intellectual history with skills development in areas such as electronic resources, archival sources, manuscripts, early books, and images. This is a rare opportunity for doctoral students to sharpen the skills needed for successful doctoral work and to meet others in the field from across the world. The programme is designed with a strong emphasis on practical issues and peer interaction.



In 2019 the programme will take place on 21-24 May, in both Coventry and London. Places are available on a first-come basis, and while registration will remain open until the event, prospective participants are strongly advised to reserve their place by 31 March. 


Registration fees include tuition, the cost of all materials, the initial lunch, and the concluding wine reception, but exclude travel, accommodation and other meals. Standard fee: £120. Subsidised fee (for University of Warwick/Warburg Institute registered PhD students): £60.00
