  • To some degree, the choice of topics can be tailored to the research interests of the participants
  • Students wishing to take this seminar must have taken the History of French lecture course in the Michaelmas Term
  • Much of the reading will be in French, so it is essential to have a very good reading knowledge of French to be able to take this seminar
