ASNC Graduate Seminar

The Graduate Seminar meets regularly in all three terms. It provides a forum for current PhD students in their second or higher year to talk about their research, and to engage in discussion with all of the graduate students (MPhil and PhD) and the senior members. On special occasions, throughout the Michaelmas and Lent Terms, it meets to hear papers given by leading academics from Cambridge and elsewhere.
