The Eighteenth Century

Seminar or event series

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 Faculty’s Trevelyan Fund provides crucial and much appreciated assistance to support visits by scholars from outside Cambridge.

This year’s Seminar will be held via Zoom and will meet on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. If you are a member of a university, you can subscribe to our list by clicking the link to the right. If not, please email the convenors to introduce yourself if you would like to join the seminar.
