Political Thought and Intellectual History
The Political Thought and Intellectual History Seminar is the official research seminar of the Political Thought and Intellectual History Subject Group of the Faculty of History. It is an integral part of the History Faculty's PhD Programme in Political Thought and Intellectual History and the Inter-Faculty M.Phil. in Political Thought and Intellectual History, which is co-sponsored by the Faculty of History, the Faculty of Classics and the Department of Politics and International Studies.
The purpose of the seminar is to present frontline research in the History of Political Thought and related disciplines (Political Theory and Intellectual History) by senior scholars within and outside Cambridge, as well as by younger academics, post-doctoral research fellows and advanced graduate students. Further educational aims are to introduce students to the skills of advanced academic debate and to integrate them into the Cambridge academic community.
