The Modern Humanities Research Association was founded in the summer of 1918, as a network of scholars of European language and culture — "including English", as the MHRA's descriptions of itself have many times added over the years. In its first century, the Association developed into a major publisher and funding body, but remained true to its roots as a gathering of scholars. The 1968 half-centenary was marked by a conference and book — a radical new step for the MHRA as it was then — and in 2018 the Centenary saw a similarly bold venture, with a programme of major public lectures presented across Britain and Ireland.
