Modern European History

The Modern European History Research seminar is the focal point in Cambridge for graduates and scholars in European history from c. 1750 to the present day. Talks tend to attract audiences of twenty to forty on a regular basis; discussions are lively, and speakers and audience generally enjoy the experience.
