Early Modern History

Trans-cultural approaches to the early modern period are a signature element of our teaching at research at CEU, and both students and researchers benefit from the combined expertise of the Medieval Studies Department and the Department of History. Combined we offer a wide range of teaching and research expertise that covers Europe, the Mediterranean, the three land empires (Russian, Habsburg and Ottoman), and the interactions of Eastern and Western Christianities with one another and with Islam and Judaism, as well as Jewish and Armenian diasporas. Graduate students have the opportunity to take part in a yearly exchange with Princeton, Oxford, Münster, Istanbul, and Vienna and plans a range of activities to create a stimulating environment for the study of early modernity.
