Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership


Annual Lecture

Each year we invite an internationally renowned speaker to address a theme of broad import across the arts and humanities.

We have previously heard from Professor Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht (Stanford, Literature), and Professor Adriana Cavarero (Verona, Political Philosophy).

Lectures have addressed ‘The Humanities and the University Today’, ‘Why Prosody and Rhythm Matter – in Poetry and in the Humanities at Large’, ‘What is Left of Marx?’, and ‘Political Phonospheres: Plurality and Crowds’.
