A collection of lectures organised by the Humanities Society of Wolfson College, Cambridge.

Our aim is to act as a forum for stimulating ideas across the boundaries between the Humanities and other fields of study. We offer a programme with international and interdisciplinary interest, featuring talks on a range of cultural contexts, themes, and from a range of historical periods and perspectives, with a balance between early career researchers, up and coming scholars, and world class professors.

Talks take place almost every Tuesday during full term and are open to the public and to all university members. We like to involve audiences in a discursive Q&A session, and our ambiance is inclusive and welcoming, offering refreshments before and after events.
