Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies (CAWCS)
The Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies (CAWCS) was established by the University of Wales in 1985 as a dedicated research centre conducting team-based projects on the languages, literatures, culture and history of Wales and the other Celtic countries.
It is located in purpose-built accommodation adjacent to the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth. Research is focused on five main areas of specialism:
- Early Celtic Languages;
- Medieval Welsh Literature;
- Romanticism and Enlightenment in Wales;
- Welsh Name Studies;
- Welsh Lexicography
CAWCS has a small cohort of postgraduates, and welcomes applications for MPhil/PhD in any of its research areas.
