The Early Modern Forum, supported from 2011-13 by an AHRC network grant, aimed to establish an international network of scholars working on all aspects of early modern studies and to encourage discussion between both members of staff and postgraduate students, who would thus be able to pursue research themes and discussions with colleagues whom they might only infrequently meet physically.

After the end of the AHRC grant, the project continued to offer a range of events at Warwick and elsewhere, until it merged formally with the Eighteeth Century Centre at Warwick in 2017.
