About us

Welcome to Knowledge Orders

Thank you for visiting the site of Knowledge Orders before Modernity (KOM for short), a Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarships Programme (LDSP). The programme is an innovative partnership which builds on the strengths of both King’s College, London and the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at the University of Kent in Canterbury, two institutions which are highly regarded for their research and skills training for medievalists and early modernists at MA level.
