    Essential Information
    This interdisciplinary MA draws on options from the Departments of History, English and History of Art. It examines new approaches to major themes on Eighteenth-Century Britain and Europe: Enlightenment, consumption and luxury, gender, the middling classes, culture and commerce, political radicalism and scientific and medical culture. The MA is closely connected to the Warwick Eighteenth-Century Centre; students share in the Centre’s lively seminar programme as well as workshops and conferences. There are excellent opportunities to engage with material culture in research events organised through the Warwick-Waddesdon Manor Programme and the Global Arts network with the V&A and Ashmolean Museums.
