Clare Hall Colloquium

The idea of the Colloquia is for Clare Hall Fellows to present something of their choosing (usually, but not necessarily, related to their research) in a talk of around 40 minutes, followed by questions and discussion. Talks are geared towards a non-specialist audience. 

We have found that the Colloquia are an important and productive way for Fellows to share their research with other members of Clare Hall.

Tuesdays at 7.30 - 9.00 pm. 

Refreshments are served.

Please contact the convenor, Dr Alexandra Winkels, for any further information at   

Clare Hall Colloquium podcasts can be found on the University Streaming Media Service.

Entangling international history in the 1950s: The Colombo Plan for aid to South and Southeast Asia.

In the wake of the Second World War, new aid programmes for decolonising Asia created the need for meetings and collaborations between a new cohort of officials who travelled to conferences and generated publicity about their efforts in ways that we might call ‘soft regionalism’. I consider one of the best known of these programmes, the Colombo Plan, for its cultivation of North-South exchanges and for how it has since been remembered.

How emotion causes depression and anxiety

The causes of depression, anxiety and many related conditions, are not known. My research consistently shows a picture very different from that of the mutually incompatible theories developed by psychologists, neuroscientists and psychiatrists, with radically different approaches to dealing with these conditions.
