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.

The seminar meets on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. at Gonville and Caius College. When possible, the seminar will be a hybrid event which allows those outside of Cambridge to join us by Zoom. Please see the details below for each seminar.
