Special subject courses
Courses are led by members of the University’s Faculty of History and visiting academics. You may wish to attend courses which most obviously complement one another or you may make a selection which covers the broadest historical period possible.
Each year, eminent historians from the University of Cambridge and beyond are invited to contribute plenary lecturesrelated to a chosen theme. The theme of this year’s morning plenary lectures is Heroes and Villains.
Additional general evening lectures will add to your enjoyment of the programme.
