German and Dutch


Research Colloquia, Special Lectures and Readings

The Programme for 2020-21 will be published early in the Michaelmas Term.


The research colloquia are seminars for staff and graduate students at which papers are given by members of staff and speakers from outside Cambridge. All graduate students in German are expected to attend these and other research events.

Special lectures and readings are open to all interested members of the University and, when advertised as such, to the general public.
