The Eighteenth Century Seminar

The Eighteenth-Century Seminar is a post-graduate seminar, sponsored by the Faculty of History, aiming to explore topics of shared interest to historians (and the historically-minded) with diverse specializations and sensibilities who work on the eighteenth century.

 The seminar meets about twice a term, on Tuesdays at 5 pm, at Emmanuel College in the Harrods Room (on the second floor of the Queen’s Building)   


The Eighteenth Century Seminar will not be meeting in 2016-2017:  as a Philip K Leverhulme Prize winner, Renaud Morieux will be on leave, and Lawrence Klein is currently chairing the Faculty of History.  The Seminar will resume energetically in 2017-2018.

The History Faculty’s Trevelyan Fund provides crucial and much appreciated assistance to support invitations to scholars from outside Cambridge.
