Cultural History Workshop

The Cultural History Workshop is an interdisciplinary platform for graduate students with an interest in cultural studies. It welcomes MPhil and Ph.D. students to present 30min papers with a cultural focus from any time period and any geographic region. No matter your reasons –challenge yourself by writing for a non-specialist audience, improve your presentation skills, try out your new chapter, get feedback on your work-in-progress, or engage with your peers at Cambridgethere will be wine, snacks and friendly discussion.   

We meet on alternate Wednesdays at 5PM at Gonville and Caius College, Green Room. Please get in touch if you are interested in presenting a paper, want to discuss ideas, or have any further questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
