Early Modern English Studies at UC-Davis

UC Davis’s community of early modernists prides itself on its interdisciplinary nature and vibrant, thriving research culture. Of particular note, UC Davis received a $1.4 million grant from the Mellon Foundation to support a three year Mellon Research Initiative in Early Modern Studies, which provided funds for programming and support for graduate students from 2011-2014. Also UC Davis is a member of the Newberry Library Center for Renaissance Studies consortium, providing ongoing opportunities for faculty and graduate student research and professional engagement.

With our nationally recognized faculty and a group of highly immersed and motivated graduate students from across the humanities and social sciences, we regularly gather for lectures, workshops, and professionalization events. This website offers a glimpse into the ways early modernists get involved, network, and collaborate within the university and beyond.
