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.

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!
