On-Campus Open Days


The Centre's primary role is to support and develop research, from undergraduate work to world-leading publications.

We fully support the University's core vision for all research to be filtered into teaching  and we see students as co-workers in this venture; Murdoch's fictional work is taught throughout the undergraduate and postgraduate programme in English.

The research events, seminars, and conferences the centre organises, both at Chichester and beyond, are open to all and our aim is to involve as many as possible, including the general public, in our work. More details of these can be found on our 'Events' page.

At present the Centre is involved with preparations for Murdoch's centenary in 2019. Activities include a major conference in Oxford in July of 2019, public lectures, seminars, and the publication of new materials. We are also working on funding bids to external agencies to support or work.

If you are interested in MPhil or PhD study please contact the Centre Director, Miles Leeson (m.leeson@chi.ac.uk), in the first instance.

We have a thriving postgraduate cohort - details can be found on the 'People' page - and we always welcome applications to study.

After initial informal contact you will need to complete the University's application form.
