Cambridge American History Seminar Michaelmas Term 2021
We are pleased to announce the schedule of seminars and events for Michaelmas Term 2021. This term we are continuing with the digital (zoom), bi-weekly format that we adopted last year. This seems the prudent way forward. In Lent 2022, we hope to return to weekly and in-person seminars. This term we shall:
- Meet bi-weekly on Mondays.
- Begin at 5:00 PM. Because Zoom can be fatiguing, we have shortened the seminars from 120 to 90 minutes. Thus, we will finish each seminar by 6:30 PM. The Zoom login details for each seminar will be made available via email to the Cambridge Americanist email list a week before each event. If you wish to be added to the list please email a request to Jonathan Goodwin at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Pre-circulate the paper for each seminar a week before the event occurs. Participants are asked to read the paper before the seminar. At the seminar itself, the presenter will give only the briefest introduction to their paper and will then be followed by a commentator offering a more extended set of reflections. Then we will open the seminar to general discussion. We hope to generate exchanges that are robust and draw in lots of participants.
We will continue to miss the regularity, intensity, and intimacy of our weekly, in-person, Knox-Shaw seminars. And the wine too. But we are excited about the schedule we have assembled for Michaelmas 2021, and the interchanges that we think the seminars will generate.
All inquiries should be directed to Jonathan Goodwin, email@example.com, 01223 335317.
