The Centre for the History of European Discourses was incorporated in the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities in August 2015.

The information in this website is therefore out of date but retained for archival and staff purposes.

This ARC-funded project analyses and appraises the relation between Anglicanism and English literature in the period between 1688 and 1945. It makes the case that English literature in the period was shaped by, and engaged in, Anglicanism in enduring ways. The monograph that will emerge from the project focuses on the writings of Swift, Sterne, Coleridge, George Eliot and T.S. Eliot. Ancillary outcomes include essays on the Warburtonians; on Anglican philosophical anthropology and on Anglican Tory mysticism.
