Seminars and Research Workshops

Seminars and workshops

free_books[3].jpgAll those admitted to this course will have access to a wide range of graduate seminars and workshops, including the Early Modern British and Irish History Seminar, the Early Modern European History Seminar, Comparative Social and Cultural History Seminar, Early Modern Economic and Social History Seminar, and the Political Thought and Intellectual History Seminar.

Students are expected to attend at least six seminars over the course of the year. Many of those run from within the early modern group of historians are attended by graduate students from adjacent disciplines – English, Modern and Medieval Languages, Theology, Social and Political Sciences, and Law as well as the students taking this course. All are welcome to participate in a range of interdisciplinary workshops and seminars promoted by the University’s prestigious Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH).

In addition, the Faculty sponsors a workshop in early modern history run by and for graduate students in the absence of senior members. Its continuation rests solely upon the enthusiasm and commitment of the graduate students themselves. The critical mass of students in the early modern field, one of the largest in the world, provides an excellent opportunity for peer-group learning and support, and this is an outstanding feature of Cambridge life.
