Research Eighteenth-Century Materials in the Cadbury Research Library
Postgraduate Travel Award
The Birmingham Eighteenth-Century Centre and the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies run an annual travel award. The winner of the 2018 award is Dr Elizabeth Spencer (York) for her project ‘Women and Accounting, 1680-1830’.

The extensive eighteenth-century holdings of this collection are detailed on the library page.
Applicants are also encouraged to take advantage of the rich eighteenth-century resources available in Birmingham more widely, including the Library of Birmingham, Birmingham Museum Trust, Soho House, Think Tank and the Assay Office, as well as the Barber Institute of Fine Arts at the University of Birmingham.
