The Centre for the Philosophy of History organises a theory and cake seminar series called The Futures of History. There are two papers per semester, these are usually held on a Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon.
Papers focus on questions of historical theory, historiography or the philosophy of history. Papers are about 40 minutes in length and are followed by questions, discussion and home-made cake and tea. The venue is usually the Senior Common Room, St Mary’s University.
Members of the public are welcome to attend the seminars and attendance is free. If you have any questions please get in touch with the co-directors firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
