Clare Hall Thursdays Lunchtime Talks 

Date: Thursday 14 March – Thursday 6 June 2024, 1pm
Location: Clare Hall Meeting Room, Herschel Road, Cambridge CB3 9AL

We are restarting the Clare Hall Thursdays Lunchtime Talks beginning on 14 March.  

Members from the College are invited to speak, including especially PhD students, postdocs, and also spouses. Research subjects and subjects of wider interest such as travel experiences are all welcome. Talks and discussion will last 60 minutes. There will be no recording.

Relaxed discussions can now continue in a proper setup in the meeting room. Discuss your ideas and meet fellow members in our creative community. Participants are encouraged to have lunch together in the Dining Hall before the talks.

Please contact Dr. Christiane Esche-Ramshorn if you are interested in being one of the speakers. Christiane is life member and art historian.
