About CRMEP

The Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) is internationally recognised as the leading centre for postgraduate-level study and doctoral research in continental philosophy in the UK. Its work is characterised by an emphasis on broad cultural and intellectual contexts and a distinctive sense of social and political engagement. This is based in critical study of the history of philosophy from the standpoint of the present.

Research

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) exercise of 2021, Philosophy at Kingston was ranked 6th in UK on the quality of its Research Outputs: with 47% of its outputs judged at the highest grade of 'world-leading'. 88% of Philosophy outputs submitted and 88% of its Research Environment were judged to be either World-leading or Internationally Excellent.

The CRMEP runs a PhD programme, a two-year MPhilStud in Philosophy and three MA programmes: Modern European Philosophy, Aesthetics and Art Theory, and Philosophy and Contemporary Critical Theory. There are normally 40 to 50 MA students and 25 to 30 PhD students enrolled in CRMEP programmes at any one time.

CRMEP members participate in a wide range of research events, and the Centre also hosts a regular series of research seminars, workshops and international conferences.

CRMEP alumni work in a wide range of university disciplines and in art and other cultural institutions both in the UK and across Europe.

CRMEP current events


Unless otherwise stated, all seminars are free and open to the public. MA and research degree students are especially encouraged to attend.
