Clare Hall Colloquium

Date: Tuesday 24 January – Tuesday 7 March 2023, 7.30pm
Location: Clare Hall, Herschel Road, Cambridge CB3 9AL

Clare Hall’s Colloquia provide members of the College – especially (but not exclusively) Visiting Fellows and Life Members – with an opportunity to present their research, whether in its early stages or already published, in a friendly setting. They are a great way to discuss your ideas, meet fellow members and to contribute to our vibrant community.

The Colloquia typically consist of a 30-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We attract an audience from many different disciplines and post-talk dialogue is often very lively and constructive. Talks are intended to be accessible to a general audience and speakers are requested to avoid unnecessary jargon and obscurantist language. Presentations are intentionally kept ‘in-house’ with no videoconferencing or recording. The Colloquia take place in term time, 7.30-9.30pm, in the Clare Hall Meeting Room. Refreshments are provided.

Future Colloquia

Colloquium Convenor, Professor Kevin Edwards, is likely to be looking for speakers for several impending slots for Easter 2023. Please let Kevin know if you are interested in joining as a speaker by emailing him via and forwarding a holding title; a 2-3 sentence description; and brief details of your Cambridge and home affiliations. An abstract accessible to a non-specialist audience (preferably 75 words or less) will be required prior to the meeting. Prospective speakers should note that there is no budget for travel, accommodation or subsistence.
