Welcome to the Centre for Early Modern Studies at ANU (CEMS ANU)
The Centre brings together a vibrant multidisciplinary group of humanities scholars and graduate researchers who study the long early modern period (1450-1800). Our research and teaching areas include history, art and design, literary and bibliographical studies, theatre and performance history, languages and historical linguistics, and the digital humanities. With four current ARC-funded projects totalling over $2 million, our researchers are developing new models of collaborative humanities research.
