Welcome to Cambridge Graduate Studies in Political Thought and Intellectual History

This website is run by current Cambridge graduate students, on an independent and voluntary basis. It is intended as a general resource for present and prospective graduates, at Cambridge and beyond.

Graduate Workshop
We are convening a fortnightly Graduate Workshop with presentations by PhD candidates and Masters students, which is both inter-disciplinary and international. For further information, please consult the workshop’s website. A poster of the latest workshop program (Michaelmas Term 2017) is available here.

2018 Graduate Conference
The pinnacle of our events is the Annual Graduate Conference in Political Thought and Intellectual History. The 2018 conference, on “Aesthetics and Poetics in the History of Political Thought,”  will take place in Cambridge on June 13, 2018. See here for the Call for Papers.

Interventions: The Intellectual History Podcast
Check out our new podcast series “Interventions: The Intellectual History Podcast.” What do intellectual historians currently investigate? And why is this relevant for us today? These are some of the questions our podcast seeks to explore. It aims to introduce intellectual historians and their work to everyone with an interest in history and politics. Do join in on our conversations!
