International Collaborations and Visitors

Eighteenth-Century Worlds welcomes international collaborations and visitors.

Collaborating Institutions


ECW has been happy to accommodate visitors, including members of university staff, postdoctoral scholars and research postgraduates, from around the world, and we welcome enquiries from prospective visitors and those seeking an institutional base from which to carry on funded research. If you are interested in visiting the centre please contact Mark Towsey, Centre Director at

Visiting researchers enjoy the use of our library facilities, which include access to one of the UK’s largest collections of digital resources (primary and secondary) in 18th-century studies.  They are invited to participate in all the centre’s activities and to observe and/or contribute to our teaching while they are here.

In the spring of 2014 we welcomed a group of university teachers from Xian Jao Tang University as observers of our undergraduate teaching, as part of a training semester organised by Liverpool University’s English Language Unit.

In 2012 ECW hosted a visit from a group of 29 Masters students from the University of Bonn on a programme dealing with 18th- and 19th-century English studies directed by Professor Barbara Schmidt-Haberkamp.
