The UK’s European University:
Kent University was founded in 1965, and has approximately 15,500 students from 140 different nationalities. With seven locations across Europe and strong European links, Kent University has an especially strong European focus in areas such as culture and languages, drama, politics, law, economics, business, social policy and migration. The University runs two Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctoral programmes, the Joint Doctorate in Cultural and Global Criminology (DCGC), and Text and Event in Early Modern Europe (TEEME). The organisers of this conference are all PhD students from the TEEME programme, which is coordinated by the Schools of English, History, and the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at Kent together with the Universidade do Porto in Portugal, the Freie Universität Berlin in Germany, and the Univerzita Karlova in the Czech Republic.
The University of Kent’s Canterbury campus is less than 25 minutes’ walk from the city centre and is built in 300 acres of parkland. The campus overlooks the town, with stunning views of the Cathedral. A regular bus service between the town and the university takes under 10 minutes, while taxis from the town centre and Canterbury train station are also available.
