Welcome to The University of Oxford’s online community for Romanticism and Eighteenth-Century Studies. Hosted by TORCH, our purpose is to provide a central forum for graduates and researchers from all departments to engage with the latest in the long eighteenth century. With information on seminars, Bodleian collections, academic contacts and postgraduate projects, we enable access to the range of events and expertise on offer at Oxford, and to promote collaborative networks and interdisciplinary study.
