Clare Hall Colloquium series to relaunch

Following a pandemically-enforced break, Clare Hall aims to relaunch in-person research seminars within our Tuesday evening Colloquium series this Michaelmas.

The Colloquia provide members of the College, and 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. 

Professor Kevin Edwards, organiser of the Colloquium series, comments:

"We are looking for speakers for the coming (Michaelmas) term. Please let me know whether you are interested in joining us as a speaker by replying to and sharing a holding title, a 2-3 sentence description, and brief details of your Cambridge and home affiliations. Also, please indicate those dates for which you are available within the period 12 October to 30 November 2021. An abstract accessible to a non-specialist audience (preferably 75 words or less) will be required prior to the meeting."

The Colloquia are normally held from 7.30-9pm in the Clare Hall Meeting Room, and typically consist of a 30-45-minute presentation followed by discussion. The evening is an informal affair, open to all members and students. We usually attract an audience from many different disciplines and post-talk discussions are often very lively, constructive and perceptive. Speakers are free to invite colleagues and students from their respective faculties. Refreshments are provided. 

Further details will follow soon, but at present the series is planned to take place on the following dates:

  • 12, 19 & 26 Oct
  • 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30 Nov
