We are thrilled to announce the new thematic public seminar series for the academic year 2022-2023:

The Americas and the World: a series convened and curated by Dr Aaron Hiltner that will bring leading scholars from across history and social sciences to analyse transnational issues across the Americas.

Environment and Society in the Americas: this series presents a multi-disciplinary and geographically ambitious range of talks that encompass political, economic and historical contests over environmental change across the Americas. Series curated and convened by Professor Gareth Davies and Dr Enrique Castañón Ballivián.

Registrations are now open for all the events in Term 1. Some sessions are in-person and some will be delivered online. The events for subsequent terms will be added shortly. Please visit our Events webpage for more details on each session.

All our events are free and open to the public to attend, but require pre-registration.
