Our doctoral researchers are involved in student-led seminars, discussion groups and networks including ROLES (the postgraduate and sexuality research network), the GCfE (Graduate Centre for Europe), the BCT (Birmingham Centre for Translation) and EMREM (a postgraduate forum for researchers working on Early Medieval, Medieval, Renaissance, Reformation and / or Early Modern topics).

The department is home to the Leopardi Centre, a Leverhulme-funded project on populists in power, an AHRC-funded project on Leopardi's Zibaldone and an AHRC-funded project on ‘Interdisciplinary Italy 1900-2010'.
