About

Text and Event in Early Modern Europe (TEEME) - An Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate is an international doctoral programme in early modern studies funded by the European Union under the Erasmus Mundus scheme in partnership with University of Kent. 

Overview

The Text and Event in Early Modern Europe (TEEME) - An Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate from University of Kent is structured around a unique collaboration between university-based researchers in the humanities and the cultural and creative sector in four EU countries (United Kingdom, Germany, Portugal, Czech Republic). 

You spend your first semester in Canterbury and then have a choice of two out of four locations: Canterbury, Berlin, Porto or Prague.

Candidates have research projects that are comparative and interdisciplinary in conception, that bear a clear relation to present needs and debates, and that span at least two different linguistic, religious and/or ethnic cultures within Europe, or that relate one European with one non-European culture, in the period 1400 to 1700, or in later political or cultural uses and representations of early modern literature and history. 

By relating a broad understanding of ‘text’ – in its original meaning of tissue, web or texture – to underlying ‘events’ – the raw data of the past shaped into story by ‘weaving’ or writing – all projects combine a textual-literary with a cultural-historical strand. 

Careers 

Many career paths can benefit from the writing and analytical skills that you develop as a postgraduate student in the School of English. The students have gone on to work in academia, journalism, broadcasting and media, publishing, writing and teaching; as well as more general areas such as banking, marketing analysis and project management.
