Graduate Studies

Graduate students have been central to the Center's mission since its founding.  We offer an individualized minor in the interdisciplinary field of eighteenth-century studies.  This option is open to any student who completes four graduate courses related to eighteenth-century studies, of which two come from a department outside of the student's home department.

The Center also supports graduate student travel for the purpose of conducting or presenting research.

Travel Awards

All graduate students in the College working on eighteenth-century-related topics are invited to apply for small grants (max. $500) to help with travelling to archives, libraries, museums, other collections, or conferences. Application must be made before travel occurs; the award will be paid via deposit to bursar's account. To apply, please submit a brief (two-page) outline of work to be done or presented, basic budget, and c.v. to the Center's Director, Professor Jesse Molesworth. Awards are made on a "rolling" basis; there is no deadline.
