Romanticism and Eighteenth Century Studies Oxford

RESCO logo

This network was funded from Mar 2014 - Mar 2016.

Romanticism and Eighteenth-Century Studies Oxford (RECSO) was a graduate-led initiative for scholars across the Humanities Division. Our aim was to provide a platform for graduates and academics from various disciplines to discuss and share their research into the long eighteenth century. It also facilitated the development of projects, workshops and larger events, and facilitated a physical meeting space for RECSO’s growing body of members.

In Michaelmas term 2016, RECSO considered ‘Researching the Eighteenth Century’, convened by Dr. Fiona Gatty. These sessions built upon our successful 2014 series ‘Teaching the Eighteenth Century’, with a focus on the challenges faced by researchers today.

The RECSO website ( provides a directory of seminars, contacts, online resources, and the latest news from a range of different disciplines in Oxford and beyond, as well as information about our regular events, talks, and workshops (see ‘Events’ for more information).
